Fête Nationale

On this day in 1789, a gaggle of French ragamuffins, "intoxicated with liberty and enthusiasm" got medieval on some pale-faced monarchs and precipitated some modern nation state shit.

To celebrate their achievement, treat yourself to that rarest of red meats, steak tartare - ideally complimented with a healthy carafe Beaujolais. Then skip down to MacDougal for a game of Pétanque with some merry Francophones.
