Bastille Day Celebration & Fireworks at Amanda's Waterfront Home in Seabrook

  • July 12, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • Amanda's house

Save the date! Tonight we will celebrate Bastille Day/ La Fête Nationale with a French potluck and fireworks (feux d'artifices) at Amanda and Mark's waterfront home in Seabrook.  We have 2 decks overlooking the water.

FRENCH SPEAKING NOT REQUIRED at this event.

Time: Party starts at 7:30PM. Fireworks start at 9:30PM.

Place:
Amanda's home in Seabrook, near Kemah, about 40 minutes southeast of Downtown Houston. Address will be sent to all "YES" RSVPs closer to the date.

About the Fireworks:
Every Friday in June and July, the Kemah Boardwalk has a free fireworks display. Fireworks take place at 9:30PM and last about 20 minutes. RAIN OR SHINE!  (Meme si il pleut, il'y aura des feux d'artifices.)

What to Bring:
Please bring a French food or beverage to share.
Some suggestions: wine, cheese, French bread, French pastry, salade nicoise, french fries, etc.

Amanda and Mark will make Poulet Basquaise.  I also have some sirop de menthe so we can make diabolo menthe.

You may also want to bring a folding chair to watch the fireworks, if you don't like to stand for 20 minutes.

-House is up 1 flight if stairs and is not handicapped accessible.
-ADULTS ONLY. House is NOT childproofed!
-No smoking inside. You can smoke outside on the deck or in the yard.

    Merci, tout le monde! Thanks to all who attended the party! We had nowhere near 50 people, but we still had a nice time. Lots of good food and French wine, good conversation in French & English, beautiful fireworks show.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
