On Julia Child's birthday, Aug. 15, the Aquitaine Group is offering guests a free glass of Champagne in her honor. It's also Restaurant Week, which means three courses and bubbly for $33.09 at Aquitaine, Metropolis Cafe, Union Bar and Grille, or Gaslight.
Madonna's birthday is the next night, but the Aquitaine folks aren't doing squat to honor her. You'll have to make Julia's glass count for both.
