Happy Bastille Day!

By Russ Starke on July 14, 2010

We’ve started a tradition of celebrating Bastille Day in honor of Phil’s fantastically French heritage. Instead of storming the local prison-fortress, we’ve taken to assembling a world-class collection of “dangerous cheeses” and enjoying them wherever Phil happens to be that day.

So today we celebrated with a group of clients (friends) who were treated to Phil’s guided tour through the cheeses of France—complete with fresh bread, grapes, cherries, almonds, saucisson sec (French salami), and cornichons (French pickles). Of course we also supplied the soundtrack, including the French National Anthem, “Foux Du Fa Fa” by Flight Of The Conchords, a host of French Canadian ditties from Russ’s collection and of course, “Bastille Day” by Rush.  Will we be celebrating with you next year? Vive La France!
