It’s Bastille Day. You Want To Go On A Picnic. Now What?

It’s Bastille Day. You Want To Go On A Picnic. Now What?
The French Revolution began with one infamous act – the storming of the Bastille. The historic revolt at the Parisian prison sparked the chain of events that dissolved the French monarchy and led to the evolution of the French republic. In France, “La Fête Nationale,” (national holiday) is celebrated with parades, dances, parties, fireworks and, of course, food. On “le quatorze juillet” (July 14th), the French and Francophiles the world over celebrate freedom by taking the party outside and picnicking - anywhere and everywhere. Others attempt their favorite French treats in their own kitchens at home - and others still - leave the cooking and the wine pairing to professionals and hit up their favorite French restaurants. Whatever your “plaisir” (pleasure) - we’ve got you covered, with Chris Campbell. Chris is a sommalier and part owner of Troquet,  located on Boyston St. right off the Boston Common. This classic French-inspired restaurant has been named one of Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Wine Restaurants in the nation.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
