7/14/12- @TheSkint #BastilleDay Bash w #Burlesque #JazzMusic & Baguette Eating Contest + Cheap Food & Booze $15

Second Annual Bastille Day Bash

Commemorate the French Revolution in true New York style, with burlesque, baguettes, and booze!

Here's what Bastille Day means to the French: civic pride, national celebrations, a commemoration of the storming of the Bastille and the rise of the modern French nation as we know it. Here's what Bastille Day means to you: French-inflected debauchery at Dekalb Market. That's not to say you can't also bring a sense of French civic pride, you'll just have to squeeze in between the can can dancers, the baguette-eating contest, and the sweet live music. C'est bon? C'est bon.

We had such a blast last year that we just had to do it again. But this time we're holding it at Dekalb Market, downtown Brooklyn's outdoor food, shopping, and events market housed in a collection of salvaged shipping containers. With plenty of affordable food and beverage options to choose from, you'll be able to make a night of it.

If you were at last year's legendary bash, you already know some of the Gallic goodies in store; this year, it's all set against the backdrop of the Dekalb Market's storage-container pop-up shops, food vendors, and beer garden (which will be open for a special night market). Hosted by the cigarette-toting Nic Tamère, The Skint's bash features French burlesque performances by The Love Show (think high kicks and Marie Antoinette wigs), and live music from The Hot Sardines, the city's wildest purveyors of rowdy, antique dance tunes. Between the sets, you can listen to the sexy Stroh violin stylings ofPete Lanctot, hit the photo booth, or prep your jaw and stomach for the infamous baguette eating contest. Beware, contestants: it may just turn into one hell of a food fight.

Whatever your nationality, this weekend in Brooklyn, we're all turn-of-the-century Frenchmen. And we're gonna have the bread hangovers to prove it.
