    July 14th, or Le Quatorze Juillet, is a big deal in France.  Bastille Day, a national holiday celebrated in grand fashion, marks the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789.

    But you don’t have to jump on a jet to join the fête this year.  Oak Cliff’s Bishop Arts District will host its own Bastille Day celebration tonight, benefitting Alliance Française of Dallas.   

    Headlining the event is a street-side Mussels Competition with top local chefs including Marc Cassel of Park, Michelle Carpenter of ZEN Sushi and Bolsa’s Graham Dodds.  This propane-fueled three-round competition is sure to heat things up!

    Additional attractions include a wine walk, a Vespa rally, pétanque demonstrations and something called a “French Maid Relay”.  Zut alors!

    The party starts at 6 p.m., so grab your beret and click here for all the details.
