On Sunday, the French Institute Alliance Franaise threw their annual block party to celebrate le quatorze juillet, a pivotal moment in the French Revolution. The best of France was represented with cuisine, can can dancers, accordions, ptanque and classic cars. Don't sulk if you missed it, it's not too late to get in on the joie de vivre, as Bar Tabac holds its Bastille Day on Smith Street Sunday 18 (Smith St between Bergen and Pacific Sts, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn; 718-923-0918,; 11am--8pm; free).
