IT WAS ANOTHER successful – and sold-out – “Euro Night” event that was hosted at La Maison Fran?ise at the Embassy of France on Reservoir Road in Washington, D.C. on Friday evening, September 17, 2010. This cultural journey and culinary buffet – for the third consecutive year – has become a tremendously popular tradition in the nation’s capital.
THROUGHOUT THE evening, guests could enjoy live music followed by dance mixes from DJ Jean Michel NYC, and feast on national dishes and drinks from open bars. Such as Spanish Jam? Serrano, Bitburger beer from Germany, Shrimp sandwiches from Sweden and a Finnish drink, consisting of Finlandia vodka.
MORE THAN 20 European Union embassies showcased their culinary specialties and traditions. Proceeds from the event will help support the numerous and varied cultural activities at the participating European embassies.
