Le Bastille

July 14th is often thought of as France's Independence Day.

More accurately, it's the French National Day — called La Fête Nationale in French — commemorating the day in 1789 when crowds stormed the Bastille, a fortress used as a prison in Paris. The event marks the beginning of the French Revolution.

We love any holiday that gives us an excuse to involve ourselves in celebratory drinking.  Viva La Booze!
