Also known as La Fete Nationale, Bastille Day is the celebration of the 1790 uprising, Fete de la Federation. Do all things French on Saturday, from eating French foods (National French Fry Day was yesterday!) to partying like the French do! Here are some places in NYC that are throwing down for the other red, white and blue.
Sky Room: The swanky rooftop bar is offering up specials in honor of the holiday. Patrons can reap the benefits of 50% off bottles of PJ Grand Brut champagne from 5-10pm (mention code word: revolution), along with a complimentary plate of fresh seasonal berries. Ricard cocktails will also be available for a cheap $5 and anyone sporting a French ID will get into the party 'fo free!

20th Anniversary AIDS Service Center NYC Gala
Among the many galas today, we chose the AIDS Service Center Gala for the sole reason that its nice to actually see your money helping people- and what a great initiative to help fellow New Yorkers battle this life-threatening virus. You’ll join over three hundred business, healthcare, and civic leaders in a dinner and awards ceremony as they commend twenty Positive Changemakers at Bryant Park Grill.
This winter season has been rough. New Yorkers have had their share of blizzards, Arctic winds and icy sidewalks. Though the dipping temperatures may inspire you to hibernate for the rest of the winter, consider stepping out of your apartment to try a cold weather cocktail. These cocktails are made with ingredients that will warm you up from head to toe. Think Kahlua, amaretto and cognac. Some are even served hot. Read on for some of the best cold weather cocktails.
