Sunday, July 18th: "BASTILLE DAY, BROOKLYN STYLE" by Philip S.Kampe

On Sunday, July 18th, BASTILLE DAY BROOKLYN will be celebrated in locations near and including BAR TABAC Restaurant, located at 128 Smith Street.

The annual event drew 14,000 visitors last year, with more expected this year.

The Bastille Day festivities begin at noon and will last until 10pm.

The event will highlight music, games, food and of course, wine.

Look for the Sud de France team. They will have a festive tent where ambassadors will offer tastings of Sud de France wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon region. They will hold a raffle (tombola) with prizes of bags of French goodies.

You will be free to play petanque, a national sport of France, where 17 million French enthusiasts normally play in the summer months.

There will be numerous food vendors selling grilled and unique French food.

Bastille Day in Brooklyn is a family event, well worth attending.

"A CELEBRATION OF ORGANIC WINES FROM THE SUD de FRANCE" takes place on Tuesday, July 20th (7:30-9:30pm) at Le Pain Quotidien United Nations, located at 937 Second Avenue between 49th and 50th Streets in New York City.

The cost is $32.50 per person plus tax and gratuity.

Sud de France and Le Pain Quotidien will host a three course meal, paired with Mediterranean Organic Wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France.

Following the meal, there will be a discussion on the impact of organic viticulture with regional organic wine specialists.
