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

  • July 11, 2014 · 7:00 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 and a view of the Kemah Boardwalk fireworks display.

FRENCH SPEAKING NOT REQUIRED at this event.

Time: Party starts at 7PM. 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 cassoulet.  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.

    Address and directions have been emailed to everyone who is a YES RSVP as of Thursday 7/10 at 4PM. The subject line says "address and directions for Bastille Day Party and Fireworks Show". If you did not receive the email, first check your junk mail folder, then email Amanda at [masked] or call/text[masked]-9160. I will not be checking email during the party, so don't email me at 7PM tomorrow telling me you can't find the address! Merci beacoup, et a demain, mes amis!
