Party peeps latch on to foreign holidays as an excuse to fire up a storm of celebrations, and Bastille Day, which is better known in France as La Fête Nationale, or le quatorze juillet (July 14th.) is no different. Mais, oui, French restaurants in L.A. such as Bouchon, Comme Ça, Melisse, and Saint Amour have special Bastille Day menus, and French festivals from Echo Park to Santa Barbara abound. If you're in Manhattan tomorrow, saunter over to the Alliance Française's French American Festival, which runs from on from noon to 6PM on July 11th. In honor of the occasion, the Girls' Guide to Paris and Exclusive Hotels are giving away three nights at the beautiful La Maison Champs Elysées Hotel, which is steps from the Champs and the Grand Palais. Use your frequent flyer miles for a plane ticket. Start the revolution and enter.
