But slowly, Bastille Day — July 14th marks the 223nd anniversary of the storming of the Bastille prison and fortress in Paris — has caught on, particularly since Kansas City now has several popular French restaurants. Here’s a petit listing of some of the more lively celebrations scheduled for tomorrow. It may be wise to make reservations in advance for these restaurant’s festivities.
