French culture, cuisine, and can-can dancing is set to take over Beverly Hills when Beaujolais Passions takes place on November 16.
If you’re into French anything, then this event is for you. It’s L.A.’s premier celebration of French culture, and the scene of French and foreign dignitaries. It’s an event that’s set to feature French culinary delicacies, exhibitors, live French music, a silent auction, and more.
But if you’re interested in French cabaret dancing, this event has something for you. Set to perform at Beaujolais Passions are the cancan dancing of Cabaret Versatile, recipient of the Best Cabaret and Variety Show at the Hollywood Fringe Festival in 2012. They’ll be performing their latest revue with dancers choreographed by French lead dancer Lola Ohlala.
Also on stage will be ‘The Lady in Red’ Jenny Eloise Rieu, a French vintage singer whose set is said to be reminiscent of world elegance and glamor.
Another thing the French are known for is their wine, and the wine will be surely represented at Beaujolais Passions with Georges Duboeuf, one of France’s biggest wine merchants, on hand to celebrate the release of his new wine Beaujolais Nouveau.
Event goers get a souvenir wine glass and a welcome glass of Beaujolais Nouveau. But this event goes to show that in Southern California, you don’t need to wait until Bastile Day to sip some delicious wine and sample some fine French cuisine.
The event takes place on Friday, November 16, from from 7pm to 12am, at Mercedes-Benz of Beverly Hills, 9250 Beverly Boulevard, Beverly Hills, 90210.
