For those who are looking for a more street fair-type event with games, food, live music and a French market, head to the Cercle Rouge in Tribeca. There'll be pÃ©tanque (French bocce ball), a raffle, and, we're assuming, all the vin et fromage you could hope for.
Cercle Rouge, 241 W Broadway, 12pm.
Live Jazz and Cocktail at Hotel Chantelle
Looking to celebrate Bastille Day by learning about how the French like to drink? At Hotel Chantelle's Bastille Day soirÃ©e, you can sip on French 75 cocktails (gin, champagne, lemon juice) while listening to the live jazz of Dandy Wellington and his band.
