Fireworks! Parties! Parades! No, it’s not a belated Fourth of July celebration, it’s how the French celebrate Bastille Day every July 14. Show support of our amis across the sea by attending a Bastille Day Party at Le Pichet, or save up all your energy for belting out “Vacation” when The Go-Go’s take the stage at Chateau Ste. Michelle in the middle of the week. And if all that singing and celebrating saps your energy, Skillet has a Golden Girls–themed happy hour to help you recover. As always, check Groupon for more things to do in Seattle.
The fireworks may be over, but summer’s just beginning. This week, trade in hot dogs and other all-American eats for some international cuisine at Bastille Bash and the Polish Festival, or time-travel from the comfort of a theater seat by taking in a stage production of Kavalier & Clay or a concert featuring three Motown greats. Oh, and did we mention Lauryn Hill’s in town? If you need more, check out even more things to do in Seattle.
