Milwaukee is a city of festivals. One of its most entertaining and delicious is Bastille Days. Commemorating French culture, it takes place for a long weekend around July 14. From the scale model Eiffel Tower to the champagne tastings, all things Gallic are on display. The fun is fueled by food, music, and libations galore. For a break from the heat and crowds, slip into nearby Elsa's Restaurant for a premium martini and superb French fries. C'est la vie!
