Beaujolais Nouveau Celebration at the Embassy of France
November 17, 2010 Leave a comment
Each year, on the third Thursday of November; a fresh batch of Beaujolais Nouveau is released in France, shipped throughout the world and enjoyed by thousands! This special tradition is celebrated each year at the Embassy of France and is a must for party-goers who appreciate French “savoir-vivre.”
Throughout this “fête champêtre” at La Maison Française, enjoy three different types of this year’s Beaujolais Nouveau as well as other libations, a delicious menu prepared by Cuisine Solutions, French pastries and live jazz by the Pete Muldoon Trio, followed by dance tunes mixed by DJ Jean Michel, the official DJ of the French Tuesday in NYC!
This year, the silent auction will feature imported French decorative items from Washingtonian collector Claudine Sorel. In addition, a raffle with a grand prize of a round-trip for two to Paris, courtesy of the unique all-business class airline OpenSkies, will be offered.
The event is organized as a festival of wine. As such there are many facets to the evening and the evening is planned so that you can mingle and walk inside the embassy to discover and celebrate French culture and cuisine. Kindly note that the event is not organized as a sit-down function but rather as a cocktail reception.
When: Thur Nov 18, 2010 at 7:00 PM till 10:00 PM.
Where: La Maison Française
