Left Bank brings French Cafe artistry to Menlo Park
with unique entertainment for Bastille Day
Two days , three nights!
July 12-14th, 2008
(Menlo Park, CA) – With the spirit of modern Paris, locally acclaimed Templeton Variety produces three distinct days of entertainment in the heart of downtown Menlo Park, in honor of this Fête Nationale, with music, circus performers, and ethnic dance. In celebration of the storming of the Bastille and the freedom of expression it granted, General Manager Gerald Murphy has made arrangements for three days of joy, July 12th through 14th from Noon to 10pm at Left Bank Brasserie (635 Santa Cruz Ave, Menlo Park, CA).
Saturday the 12th of July, the spectacle starts at Noon as Stilt Dancers engage young and old alike along Santa Cruz Avenue, bringing joie de vivre to all who pass. In the afternoon they will be joined by our fiddler and accordionist from the Red Hot Chachkas, each playing solo sidewalk shows. They will pair up to provide live music in the lounge from 8-10PM that will keep you on your feet! And if that is not enough, Rebecca Firestone will perform ethnic saber dances to entrance and astound!
Sunday the 13th of July, our Stilt Dancers will be out at Noon again, to be joined by Bay Area favorite, Suzanne Ramsey, aka Kitten on the Keys, with an accordion set in the afternoon and her full show in the lounge between 6PM and 8PM. Recently back from a two month tour of Europe, this show marks Suzanne’s triumphant return for fans who have mourned her absence from the scene.
Monday the 14th of July singer Marisa Lenhardt will honor Bastille Day proper with songs from her repetoire of classical Opera between 7PM and 9PM. If you’re looking for a lovely environment for an elegant celebration, please book your table in advance by calling (650) 473-6543 for reservations.
