Accordion! Mimes! Open gin bar! $3 beer! Cupcakes! Can-can!
Come to Littlefield on July 16 for an afternoon of le French mayhem cooked up by the skint crew. Avec:
LES HOT SARDINES, playing their barn-burning, floor-mopping hot jazz, dixieland and French chanson (tap dancer included!)
MIRA STROIKA the wandering chanteuse, channeling Piaf with her squeezebox d'amour!
CLOWNS ABOUT TOWN, self-described "professional party instigators" -- or as we call them, hot mimes!
THE LOVE SHOW burlesque, schooling you in French history -- with Marie Antoinette wigs and pasties!
FOXY VERMOUTH will blend cabaret and cabernet in a way that will make you blush!
Your M.C. NIC TAMÈRE, all the way from Toulouse and pissed at NYC's no-smoking laws!
Just added! Baguette eating contest with the League of Amateur Competitive Eaters (L.A.C.E.)! Think you can eat... one?
and what party would be complete without Robicelli's Cupcakes? They may not be French, but they use real French buttercream in the frosting and Matt went to the French Culinary Institute. Touché!
