Bastille Day Celebrations Around Town

Keep Paris close to home

bastille day!

This Saturday Bastille Day is cause for revelry. When in Atlanta, do as the French do.

Yes, You Cancan
Dust off your corset and rouge pumps for Paris on Ponce’s inaugural Bastille Day Festival (Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and 6-9 p.m.): burlesque, live music, tarot card reading, French film screenings, aerialists, puppet shows, tastings, sales, and more for free.

Authentic Chic
Choose a French twist, plait, or classic chignon ($50 when you mention DailyCandy through Saturday) at avant-garde salon Selden Beylouni. For brows that would make Marion Cotillard envious, let Beylouni work her magique (she’s the best in town).

bastille day!Haute Stuff
Sip on champagne and Lillet cocktails, browse new arrivals from France (antique furniture, vintage hotel silver, Bagllerina flats), and enter to win a three-night stay in co-owner Ann Huff’s Paris apartment during Huff Harrington Home’s Summer Market Soiree (Friday, 6-8 p.m.; R.S.V.P. to info@andshetoldtwofriends.com). Return the next evening for an exhibition (6-8 p.m.) in the gallery by French and French-inspired artists (Pascal Bouterin’s abstracted cityscapes, Lorraine Christie’s street scenes).

Bon Appetit
Break bread at Le French Quarter Cafe (57 Forsyth Street, in the Healey Building, suite r8, Downtown; 404-645-7963) with a croissant, toasted loaf with Nutella, croque monsieur, or the Boulevard de Saint-Germain (PB&J on French bread).

C’est si bon.
