Did you know Parisians like hamburgers? They also like sushi, cherry tomatoes and feeling superior because of socks and seriousness. That’s all according to Oliver Magny’s blog, “Stuff Parisians Like”.

Magny recently spun that blog into a book of the same name, which offers many tips on faking like you’re a Parisian.

We must study up on these things, neighbors, for Bastille Day is nigh.

The second-annual Bastille on Bishop is  from 6-10 p.m. Thursday, July 14 in the Bishop Arts District. It will feature a mussels competition, crepe stands, live accordion music, pétanque, a wine walk, a Vespa rally, classic French cars and French maid relays.

Last year, Bastille Day drew at least 1,500 people to the Bishop Arts District on a Wednesday night.
