Grab up your berets and turtlenecks and ring in Bastille Day Friday the 13th for an awesome French Embassy celebration courtesy of the  Comité Tricolore Washington DC.

This year is full of all kinds of awesome French festivities and cuisine perfect for all you Franco-fun loving Francophones out there like me. ::wink wink::

This year’s theme: Alsace — home of world-class vineyards, picturesque villages and artists and icons like Marie Tussaud (of the famous wax musuems), Charles Munch and Thierry Mugler (#yasskween).

Sip great wine, hang out on the patio, listen to great music and participate in their silent auction this Bastille Day. Dress is cocktail attire and Alsatian colors are highly encouraged (red & white).

Tickets are available on Eventbrite and range from $115 – $175 depending on package purchased.

Oh — did we mention there’s an open bar until 9:30PM? Yep.

The fact is, the space you’re in matters –– and that’s why there are awards and recognitions galore for the spaces that inspire.  One of the most respected voices in the industry belongs to the American Institute of Architects (AIA), which gives prestigious awards out annually. Recently, the AIA noted their picks for 2018’s Housing Awards, acknowledging the most notable residential projects built in the last year.
