Local friends, don't be surprised if you see me try to recreate some knock off (low budget) version of this Bastille Day party because I love everything about it! (Actually, you and me both would be surprised if I found the time and energy to pull this off.) J.D. thinks it's absolutely crazy that I'd ever want to throw a Bastille Day party. "We aren't French, makes no sense, we celebrate 4th of July", he tells me. And he's right, but those menus written in cursive French tied around individual little baguettes are pretty darn charming.
