At some point, a band eyeing pop ubiquity must make a late-night stop at NBC's Studio 8H in Manhattan. In January, it was the turn of Bastille - a British rock quartet riding the success of a chart-topping single called “Pompeii” - to perform on “Saturday Night Live,” and the magnitude was not lost on drummer Chris Wood. If it had been, Wood's friends and family were there to constantly remind him anyway. “Everyone just kept saying to us, 'You realize it's a really big deal, right?

THIS WAS THE FIFTH year in which Dan and Donna Wecker had thrown a Bastille Day celebration at their restaurant, The Elkridge Furnace Inn. It was the biggest one yet, with a couple hundred folks expected. About half an hour into the party, the winds kicked up around the party tent, and guests rushed to the doors to watch members of the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Trauma Team arrive on the back lawn. By helicopter. Not an unimpressive way to introduce the evening's beneficiary. For many of the guests though, the helicopter wasn't the party standout.

In honor of Bastille Day last Tuesday, my Top 10 list celebrated French restaurants. My editor asked me if there were even 10 French restaurants in Maryland, top or not, and asked if I was including IHOP for its French toast. Here's the list I came up with, in alphabetical order: 1 Bonaparte Breads in Fells Point. A casual French coffee shop with sandwiches and good French pastries and breads. 2 Bonjour Bakery & Cafe in Mount Washington. Authentic French pastries and a few savories like quiche and meat and cheese croissants.

If Dreadnaught and Fishy Advice had known that Ashkal Way was going to sit out the $200,000 John D. Schapiro Memorial Breeders' Cup turf race at Laurel Park, they might have figured one or the other would win. But sitting behind Fishy Advice, saving ground along the rail, was Bastille, a dark brown 4-year-old, who was stepping up in class and who stepped up in a big way, nipping Fishy Advice just before the wire and relegating Dreadnaught to third yesterday....

Charles and Audrey Gildea savored a taste of French "joie de vivre" yesterday afternoon as they lingered over strawberry crepes and wine on the breezy porch of the Maryland Inn in Annapolis.From their cool perch at the top of Main Street, they watched a small but steady stream of determined Francophiles celebrate Bastille Day, France's national independence holiday.Children stood in line to have their faces painted by a clown, tourists stopped to buy peanuts and giggling girls waited to have their fortunes told.

PARIS -- Marking his second Bastille Day yesterday as president of France, Jacques Chirac told his disgruntled compatriots that, in effect, they couldn't have their cake and eat it, too -- that years of high deficit spending and mismanagement meant that they would have to sweat through high unemployment and high taxes to pay off deficits for at least another year before recovery set in.But then, perhaps mindful of Marie Antoinette, he invited thousands of...

Six years after it opened, Petit Louis, the French bistro in Roland Park, started offering Sunday brunch this summer. If you haven't been back since its early days, that may seem odd. After all, the whole point of Sunday brunch is a leisurely meal in surroundings where you can talk, or just linger comfortably, while Petit Louis did its best at first to be a prototypical French bistro: noisy and energetic. Things have calmed down a bit since then. The place usually isn't as crowded as it was when it was brand new, and some soundproofing has been added around the ceiling.

If the flowerpots are sitting outside the new French country antiques shop Bastille, Marie-Noelle Walsh is in. And if you wander inside the new Hampden shop, you'll find 17th-, 18th-, 19th- and 20th-century armoires, buffets, chests, tables, chairs, mirrors and other accessories, each imported from France. Walsh selects every piece herself at estate sales and repossessions in France and ships them to her store. "I consider [Bastille] more like a showroom gallery ... with pieces of art. I don't consider it a store," says Walsh, who loves to tell customers about the history of her unique items.

PARIS -- Seeking compromise after weeks of protests of labor reform legislation, President Jacques Chirac announced yesterday that he would sign the law but quickly seek modifications to meet the concerns of angry students and labor unions. Chirac's speech on nationwide television was a much-anticipated response to a growing conflict that has brought strikes, protests, campus sit-ins and violence in recent weeks. The increasingly reclusive Chirac addressed the nation for the first time since November's riots in immigrant-dominated public housing, the last crisis to hit his weakened and divided government.

DIGNE-LES-BAINS, France - The signs on the autoroute announced it clearly: Driving into Digne-les-Bains was "impossible" without a pass. But on this Bastille Day, French cyclists were exempt from the rules of the road. David Moncoutie of the French team Cofidis went to the front early and fought off a series of attacks to finish an emotional first in the 116.2-mile 12th stage of the Tour de France yesterday. Sandy Casar of team Francaise des Jeux outsprinted Spain's Angel Vicioso for second.

PARIS - Nothing quite says "Paris" in the hearts of dreamers like cozy apartments overlooking lush gardens with trickling fountains, or lazy conversations conducted while sipping coffee in outdoor cafes along the Seine. And nothing quite says Paris in the minds of realists these days as this: Apartments are affordable to almost nobody, and cafes are being enveloped by the thick, belching smoke of traffic going nowhere quick. The City of Light is becoming a difficult place to live. It might still remain a refuge for artists, for struggling musicians busking in subway tunnels, for lovers in love with love.

Washington. -- We are at the midpoint between the Fourth of July and Bastille Day. It is the right moment to announce the winner of the world's most important contest, which was proclaimed in this column some months ago. The name of the game was to come up with a new holiday to celebrate the End of the Cold War. (I am the sole judge.)This is no trivial pursuit. Holidays are guideposts; they are important because they tell us what is important.There have been three great revolutions in modern times.

Woe to the poor Howard County residents who find themselves in the throes of a French cuisine fit. True, Tersiguel's of Ellicott City will do more than satisfy the urge to indulge in fine country French fare. But a quick trip down U. S. 1 to Laurel will put you at the doorstep of Cafe de Paris. Cafe de Paris is indeed a charming and romantic restaurant, with simple white lace curtains, low, understated lighting and a friendly, yet unobtrusive, wait staff. It is also in the most unlikely place -- the dreary back side of Laurel Lakes Centre, next to a quiet movie theater.

Well-aged music with rich color, a hint of tobacco and a strong finish was served up by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra to open its newly christened Summer Wine and Music Fest Wednesday night at the Meyerhoff. Because it was also Bastille Day, the tastings in the lobby were of French vintages; inside the hall, works by French composers prevailed. As in previous BSO summer festivals, a chamber-music program preceded the orchestral one, and, in a nicely symmetrical touch, the spirit of Francois Couperin put both portions in motion.

SAINT-FLOUR, France - The racing yesterday belonged to the French, which seemed fair because it was Bastille Day, a national holiday. Richard Virenque, 34, a rider brought down by the Tour de France's worst doping scandal in 1998 but who rose again because of his fierce love of climbing the mountains, led much of the way to earn the first mountain-stage victory. And a young native, Thomas Voeckler, made a determined sprint at the end of the 147.27-mile leg, this year's longest, to hold on to the Tour's yellow jersey.
