    Yum! Wonder if Lance Armstrong snacks on those during the off-season?

    Hooked on the Tour de France coverage? If you can't make it to France to watch those bikers vie for the Maillot Jaune (translation: Yellow Jersey) in person, join in on the excitement in a much, MUCH better way.

    After all, cyclists get tired, dirty, sore, sweaty and potentially injured. So you should understand that we might have found a better way to get involved with Tour de France: by eating a special dessert at Mon Ami Gabi (7239 Woodmont Ave., Bethesda). Ooh la la!

    During the duration of the race (July 4-26), the bistro's menu will be adding a "Paris Brest" (hehehehe) -- the famous French wheel-shaped pastry puff filled with cream. If you need to pretend you're in a Parisian café watching the Tour competitors ride by while you enjoy this "Paris Brest" pastry -- hey, it's OK, we won't know the difference.

    Yeah, you could also start biking again, but pastries sound far more fun. Bon appetit!
