Two days after the French Cultural Center hosted a block-long Bastille Day party on Marlborough Street, Gaslight Brasserie hosted its own holiday soiree on the real Bastille Day, which was Sunday. The French restaurant celebrated with a patio party that included a roast pig and music from the Dennison Blackett Jazz Ensemble. Revelers included
Alexandra Craig, who is from South Boston but explained, “I was actually born in Paris, so I'm trying to get my cultural roots back and celebrate where I was born.” She was there with fellow Southie resident Chelsey Velozo. Meanwhile, reveler Devin Youngclaus of Boston said during the party, “Maybe by the end of the night I’ll figure out what Bastille Day is.” (Perhaps it’s time for Youngclaus to visit the French Cultural Center on

Marlborough Street.)
