Bastille Day ’09 in Adams Morgan


07/14/09 They closed a city street in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of DC tonight for L’Enfant Café’s Bastille Day bash and “French Maid” relay race. 30 customers dressed in French Maid costumes and spectators were promised in advance that the race would have “all of the fun and excitement of the Grand Prix with none of the elegance.”
