bastilleBay seniors in the mood to celebrate history’s most famous prison break are invited to take their pick of Bastille Day events. Chez Panisse is having special menus and music by the Baguette Quartet. The city’s closest approximations to Paris, Belden Place (Plouf, Café Bastille ) and Claude Lane (Café Claude and Claudine) will be Francophile Central. Start your fete early Friday at the Rickshaw Shop for their annual disco, Bardot a Go Go, (9pm,$10). For post Bastille revelers on Monday the Commonwealth Club is having a forum with Cara Black who lives here but writes Parisian mysteries, and chocolatier Shawn Williams (11:30 am,$12). And despite the state-wide ban, rumor has it that you can still score foie gras by asking for pear dessert at La Folie.
