Beaujolais Nouveau

Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrive! Every year on the third Thursday of November millions of cases of Beaujolais Nouveau (a very easy to drink, fruity red wine) are shipped to Paris where they are immediately exported all over the world. This may not seem like such a big deal to a mere American, but to the French it means party time!

This year, the Alliance Francaise de Washington is inviting musical guest Simone Marchand to perform songs by Edith Piaf and other popular music from vintage French parties. But, what makes this affair extra special is that DJ Stylus will be conducting the vibe via the turntables with a funky mix of hip-hop, electronica, and soul, blending the nouveau with the vintage.

Le Beaujolais Nouveau wine release party is on Friday, November 16, 2007, from 6:30pm-9:30pm.
