Even if you are not in France, there are ways to celebrate Bastille Day right here in the Bay Area. There is of course the annual celebration at the Alliance Francaise in San Francisco. You can also just drop by your local French cafe, and wish the folks a happy bastille day. I stopped by Douce France for my mid morning snack. There are many La Boulange bakeries scattered throughout the city, and of course we have Cafe Claude.
