bardotStill in the mood to celebrate independence? There’s always Bastille Day coming up on the 14th. The French Consul General invites you to a banquet (held for some odd reason on the 9th) where you can win two round-trip tickets to Paris. The liveliest B-day revels always happen around the cafes on Belden Place. At the Rickshaw Shop on Fell a dance party saluting 60’s France, Bardot a GoGo, with free shag hairstyling, takes place on Friday. Greener festivities occur in the Redwood Grove of the Berkeley Botanical Garden. For my euros the most authentic Parisian spot in the city has always been Café Claude, with great croque monsieurs and their humming French waitstaff.
