CELEBRATE BASTILLE DAY WITH WINE, FOOD AND FUN!
Bastille Day was declared the French national holiday on 14 July 1880, when the new Republic was firmly entrenched. Bastille Day has such a strong signification for the French because the holiday symbolizes the birth of the Republic. As in the US, where the signing of the Declaration of Independence signaled the start of the American Revolution, in France the storming of the Bastille began the Great Revolution. In both countries, the national holiday thus symbolizes the beginning of a new form of government.
So Join us on July 11 and show your red white and blues. A prize will be awarded to the best beret.
We will gather at noon on Friday, July 11in the La Louisianan Room at the Hotel Mazarin. Chef Agnes will prepare a special luncheon for the Krewe and King Patrick will select the wines. The all-inclusive price is $60.00 per person. You may invite prospective members and guests to this luncheon
