I'm all about celebrating holidays, even if I have to borrow them from foreign countries. Did you know that today is Bastille Day?
Neither did I, but it's a great excuse to hit Riverfront Park and the Millenium Bridge for the second event in the Riverfront Park Wine and Fashion Series
. Tonight's event is inspired by Paris, with French wines provided for tastings by Little Raven Vineyards, hors d'oeuvres by 5 Degrees, and the latest in Euro fashion by Nieman Marcus. The bridge's stunning ship's mast sculpture is a great backdrop for the models on the catwalk, making this one of Denver's most visually interesting outdoor events. We really do have a beautiful city, and tonight's sunset fashion show should be the perfect place to appreciate it.
Tickets are $25 for the open wine bar and entry, or $40 gets you a reserved seat along the catwalk (assuming they are still available.)
I'll be there, ready to lift a glass to celebrate summertime fashion shows, Bastille Day, and anything else that comes to mind. Salut!
