If you didn’t make the free baguettes at Parc today or London Grill owner Terry McNally’s annual pastry-chucking at the Eastern State Penitentiary last Saturday, there are still other ways to tip your chapeau in honor of the French.

Le Bec-Fin: French chef Georges Perrier is thowing a sidewalk party in front of the restaurant from noon to 8 pm with live music, $5 frozen martinis, sparkling wine and tartelette samplers, plus $2 ice cream and sorbet.

Sofitel: The French hotel is serving $2 crepes from 3-5 pm in front of the hotel and hosting a happy hour and fashion show at the lobby bar from 5-7 pm, plus a live cooking demo. Chez Colette, the hotel’s restaurant is serving a $35 four-course dinner starting at 6 pm.

Patou: The Old City bistro is serving a three-course dinner for $25 or a five course small plate dinner for $35, plus drinks, tax and tip.
