July 14th was Bastille Day, we celebrated in DC on the 13th with a block party hosted by L'Enfant Cafe in Adams Morgan. When I arrived I was welcomed by an aerialist.
Then things got better... There were french maids and burlesque type dancers all around. As the sun set King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette took the stage and tossed out feathered masks and they started pumping the dance music.
I'm not sure if this is how it is celebrated in France, but I think they would be proud.
