A fairly new weekend festival has really taken off in popularity, called Fleur Delicious Weekend, a French-themed festival, with a street fair atmosphere. Its intent is to celebrate all of the senses: Taste, smell, sight, touch and sound! Restaurants, bars, art galleries, boutiques, spas and music venues all participate with French-inspired indulgences in food, wine, spirits, art and entertainment. That includes us here at the Bridgeford House Bed and Breakfast, where we will feature French-themed cuisine in our morning menu. (And, of course, we will feature Sophie, the German dog with the French name!)
Events start out early on Wednesday, July 3, with the Ciroc Vodka Bartender Competition. Things really start hopping in Eureka starting Thursday, July 11th. Check out the entire schedule. (We’re particularly excited about Frankie the Monkey coming back that weekend to star in the show at Intrigue Theater – he steals all the thunder!).
The Stonehouse Wine Bar will be featuring a “Regions of France” wine tasting Thursday, Friday and Saturday that weekend – and the Stonehouse by itself is worth the visit! Another major favorite of ours is the Grand Tavern, featuring special menu items and French wines all weekend (in addition to all their other fabulous food!), as well as DeVito’s (although normally Italian), who does a personality change for the weekend, serving a special Fleur Delicious menu and French wine flights (in addition to the regular wonderful food, of course).
Come join us that weekend – park your car for the duration and walk around our lovely town, enjoying the sights, sounds, smells, touch and – most especially – the taste France! And a special bonus – the Grand Illumination event will run in conjunction with Fleur Delicious, featuring tons of Oriental silk and paper lanterns (including our B&B!) decorating our lovely Victorian architecture, all over town.
Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie, too!
