Let Them Eat Art, Maplewood's Bastille Day celebration, takes Marie Antoinette's "let them eat cake" dictum to heart with this year's Night of Thousand Cupcakes theme. One thousand little cakes will be given away tonight between 6 and 11 p.m. in the heart of Maplewood (Manchester Road and Sutton Boulevard; www.cityofmaplewood.com). The city incorporates the best of France and a little bit of Mardi Gras with tarot card readings, live demonstrations by more than 50 artists, music by Gumbohead and the Gene Dobbs Bradford Blues Experience, and belly dancing with Exotic Rhythms. There's even a little ooh la-la courtesy of a late-night performance by Lola Van Ella. And just like those cupcakes, admission is free.
