bastille day, brooklyn-style

Grab your boules and head over to play some pétanque

Today is Bastille Day! If you missed last Sunday's Alliance Française block party in Manhattan, you can still celebrate with all your favorite Francophiles en plein air* in Brooklyn. According to Flavorpill there's a party on Smith Street in Cobble Hill/Carroll Gardens this Sunday, July 18 starting at 11am-10pm at Bar Tabac! "Bar Tabac’s annual Bastille Day celebration will feature live music, a pétanque tournament" and lots of Frenchie food and drink. Sounds delicious. Hint: if you want to practice your pétanque skills before Sunday, head on over to Bryant Park today where they give free lessons. It's totally fun.

Q: So whatcha gonna wear to the Bastille Day party?
