Bastille Day!

I am so excited that Lodekka gets to participate in the Pix Bastille Day Block Party - by default! Little did I know that when I parked the bus on the empty lot on Williams that I would be smack dab in the middle of the action. According to my customers' accounts, this event gets CRAZY. Champagne, confetti, sugar, loud music and LOTS of people. Sounds simply magnifique!

Below is the invitation from Pix:

To celebrate the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789 which spurred the French Revolution (and to have a little fun at the same time) Pix is holding a day/night long block party in front of its North Williams location. Come for live mus...ic, a wine drinking 5K, Champagne sabering demo, grape stomping and more.

In addition to the fun and games we are supporting the Oregon Food Bank. This is a FREE community event but in exchange... we ask that each attendee bring 2 or more non perishable food items. For each item donated guests will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of 100 gift certificates to Portland's best restaurants. The more items you bring the more chances you have to win and the more mouths we can feed.

Just in case you get hungry or thirsty at the party, don't worry! In addition to our daily offerings of tasty French pastries, partake in the Champagne & Oyster Bar, a 60# Carlton Farms roasted pig, Lompoc beer garden and more!

Without further adieu, I introduce to you the 2010 Pix Bastille Day Celebration Block Party! (throw confetti now)
