Let Them Eat Nachos: Giants Hosting First-Ever Bastille Day at AT&T Park

Posted By on Mon, Jul 12, 2010 at 11:30 AM

AT&T Park and the Giants are being careful not to isolate any group on the planet. Ballpark nights honoring singles, Jews, LGBTers, Girl Scouts, Deadheads, and German beer fans all seem to affirm that yes, baseball really cares. And while it's unknown how many local baseball fans are either Francophiles or actually French, they'll have a chance to eat and watch some ball when the Giants return home later this week.

On Thursday evening, the day after the official Bastille Day bashes go off around the city, AT&T is hosting a celebration in honor of French independence as the Giants take on the Mets. The ticket includes a seat in a special "French-American Heritage section," where we'd giggle into our glass of bubbly to see the food hawkers for once call out, "Get your morbier ... frites!" in zee most charming French accent.

Thursday's special Bastille Day celebration ticket also gets you into a pregame party that promises "cultural food" with drinks and entertainment. It starts at 5:15 p.m., which should give you two full hours of French culture before the all-American game of baseball starts.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
