Bastille Day at the French Embassy

'

Editorial Review

If you're celebrating a French holiday, you might as well as close to France as you can be, right? The annual Bastille Day party at the French Embassy's La Maison Franaise gets an older, dressier crowd than some of the other parties around town " that could be perhaps because general admission tickets costs $100. (To be fair, that price includes an open bar with champagne, wine and beer, food from local French restaurants and a dessert-tasting, and proceeds go to charity.) Entertainment comes from jazz and dancing.
