Tuesday, July 14: Running of the French Maids
To celebrate Bastille Day, L’Enfant Cafe is hosting a French-maid relay race. Gather at this Adams Morgan bar at 8 to witness more than 30 people decked out in sexy French-maid costumes. We suggest arriving early to take advantage of food and drink specials. The party is hosted by King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette—or at least a couple of folks dressed up like them—so everyone’s eating (free) cake! For more Bastille Day fun, check out our guide.
