Bastille Day in San Francisco a Huge Success

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

Sort of. Maybe people got their Bastille on over the weekend, instead of last night.

Down on Claude Lane in Union Square, instead of le jazz hot revelers got AC/DC’s Back in Black for at least part of the time anyway.

This what Belden Lane, home of Plouf, Cafe Bastille, B-44, and le Best-O-Burger, looked like later in the evening. Most people were just sitting around noshing.

See you next year?

Local Pornographers Help San Francisco Celebrate Bastille Day

Monday, July 14th, 2008

Well it’s July 14, so it must be time for another Bastille Day in San Francisco. Peter Acworth‘s famously makes pornography at the old San Francisco National Guard Armory and Arsenal down in the Mission district, but they’re never too busy to let a holiday go by without hoisting some huge flags for the occasion.

 And anyway, efforts like this might serve to tamp down some of the criticism from the neighbours.


Get over to Belden Alley in the Financial District (“the financh”) sometime today to get in on the fun.

Jours heureux!
