If your idea of celebrating French independence extends beyond just drinking wine, Seattle has plenty of francophile foodie events going on this weekend:
Cafe Campagne is holding a "Party for the Revolutionaries," celebrating with food "priced for the people," while its plus cher upstairs counterpart, Campagne, is hosting a five-course "Dinner for the Royalists."
Le Pichet is also hosting Bastille Day activities, bringing freedom to the people in the form of free French folk rock. And, of course, Cafe Presse, Le Pichet's new little sister, will be pairing your croque madame with Le Tour on le big screen.
Le Panier will be open per usual, which seemed to qualify as an event in and of itself to the person on the other end of my phone call.
Of course, there's also an actual Seattle Bastille Day celebration at Seattle Center on Sunday, but in true French form, it's not actually on Bastille Day.
And if your idea if celebrating France is showing them what they don't tend to do well, tip a few back at Beerstile Day, the Phinney Neighborhood Center's semi-annual beer fest.
Don't worry, there won't be any French microbrews in the lineup.
