On Wednesday, January 16th, from 5 to 7 pm, come eat the traditional Galette des Rois.

"The King cake traditionally celebrating Epiphany in France and Quebec is sold in most bakeries during the month of January. Tradition holds that the cake is "to draw the kings" to the Epiphany. A figurine, la fève, which can represent anything from a car to a cartoon character, is hidden in the cake and the person who finds the trinket in his or her slice becomes king/queen for the day and will have to offer the next cake. Originally, la fève was literally a broad bean (fève), but it was replaced in 1870 by a variety of figurines out of porcelain or—more recently—plastic."
