Dress in your peasant best, bring your anti-monarchy signs and celebrate Bastille Day. Friday’s Gathering of the Mob will meet at Howards and begin a parade march/pub crawl to six other Soulard watering holes, ending in Pontiac Square Park for the (bloodless) beheading of the French king and queen. Sunday’s festivities feature the Bastille en Vogue fashion show, which will showcase whimsical period fashion, and plenty of fine French fare from Franco, including a savory tarte flambé, palmier with prosciutto, gougères and assorted petit fours.

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood – especially in the Central West End. Take in local flavor as restaurants and shops offer games, specials and refreshments every second Friday of the month through September. Past festivities have included drink specials and pork steak dinners at Kopperman’s Deli, summery discounted cocktails at Sub Zero Vodka Bar and free tea samples and cookies at MaryAnn’s Tea Room.

Pigs will fly (allegedly) on the parking lot at Mathew’s Kitchen in St. Louis Hills. Chef-owner Mathew Unger will serve up eight varieties of his famous pig wings: pieces of braised pork shank flash-fried and doused in one of eight sauces, including original, sweet Thai chile, spicy garlic chile and teriyaki. Pulled pork sandwiches will also be available for purchase, and the 21-and-older crowd can cool down with Urban Chestnut beer. This family- and pet-friendly event will also feature games and prizes.
