Happy Bastille Day to all the Francophiles out there ... it's the French holiday that commemorates the storming of the Bastille, and what better to celebrate this event than a waiters' race that starts at 6 p.m. tonight. Dozens of servers will gather at Le Petit Paris (1221 19th St., Sacramento) and do their best not to spill a bottle of wine and glasses on a tray as they speedwalk to L Wine Lounge (1801 L St., Sacramento). We're hearing that the streets will be blocked off as the servers race toward the finish line, and the race itself isn't expected to take more than 10 mins. or so.
Which waiter will reign supreme? Check tomorrow's Bee for my story about all the thrills and spills from this race.
