How appropriate that the French Consulate and French Library of Boston decided to celebrate Bastille Day — the French national holiday celebrating liberté, égalité, and fraternité — at the Liberty Hotel. Hundreds of Francophiles took over the multi-level lobby of the chic jail-cum-hotel for dancing, drinking, and noshing. There was even a Marie Antoinette sighting(!).
