La Fête Nationale
Call it La Fête Nationale or Le Quatorze Juillet, Bastille Day celebrations are a big deal throughout France, and even here stateside. Celebrated on July 14th, the most important French holiday marks the birth of the French Republic. While the usual parades, waiter races, and can-can girls may be sidelined this year, you can still dine on French specialties around town that will make you sigh "Vive La France!"
