The Bastille Tumble
This event is for the funloving, but not the faint of heart or the easily offended. The Tumblers meet on July 14th in the 500 block of FRENCHMEN after dark, imbibe heavily, do lascivious Frenchie-type things and take to Le Street to storm Bars and Bastilles at dark-thirty. Clothing optional (especially given the heat), costumery encouraged and profuse sweating expected. (The "offishul" alternate name for this little soiree is Da Midsummer Night's Sweatfest.) Bring your instruments, percussion toys and dancin' shoes for the annual tumble (parade) through the French Quarter.
