Julia Child, known for introducing French cuisine to the American public, made cooking fun and adventurous. And even though you may never have the opportunity to live in France or study under the best, you can still celebrate by dressing the part.

This Wednesday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at  Rise N°1, you can finally fulfill all your wildest French dreams. For Julia Child’s 100th birthday, come dressed as Julia Child and enjoy a Julia-inspired lunch for free. And while it’s all in good fun, the organizers urge all impersonators to be respectful while celebrating the life of  Julia Child.
