Today, July 14th, is Bastille Day, and what better way to celebrate than watching waiters race down Pennsylvania Avenue attempting to balance a bottle of water and a glass of beer on a tray held in one hand?
Head on over to Les Halles at 1201 Pennsylvania for the 2pm waiters’ race. There’s also a children’s race at 12:30 and a customers’ race at 1pm, which you can join in for 10 bucks (the $$ goes to charity).
And for this evening, there’s always a scene on at Bistrot du Coin in Dupont Circle for Bastille Day.
People even dance on the bar…
Now there may be some of you grinches who scoff and say, “Why celebrate French independence?”
Well, why don’t you go to Lafayette Square at 16th and Penn (located opposite the White House), and ask the Marquis?
