Notice: Crown Prince Harpik of Ruritania, organiser of said event, wishes it to be known that this soiree is in no way intended to be celebration of the French Revolution. However, we at Le Flâneur take the view that all yahoos on Bastille Day are by definition in celebration of the glorious events of 1789, true dawn of western civilisation:

Allons enfants de la patrie,
Le jour de gloire est arrive!

Le Marquis de Vouvray will of course be providing a complete rendition of La Marseillaise at full throttle after his second jereboam of Veuve Cliquot. Not to be missed.

A few hints at proper mufti for this splendid event!
