The invitations to attend a big soiree for the Amoureux de Paris for 22 June dropped into my Twitter DM box from @jfruiz and @blogparis. I was a bit hesitant to accept because I knew the expected crowd would be mainly French speaking bloggers, not the usual American expats I’m used to meet at Tweet-ups.
And boy, was I happy I decided to go! The big party held in the La Bonne Franquette organised by the ParisParis team was such a hoot.
It was a party that started at 19h30 (and didn’t want to end) till midnight. It was an evening that was what the French would call une soirée bien arrosée, the flow primed by the first welcome glass of champagne.
Though joining in the fun was not free, the registration/reservation fee of €29.00 was money more than well spent. Dinner was a feast, with several choices of very good entrées, plats principales et desserts, all served with the accompanying wine from the well stocked and expertly chosen cellar of La Bonne Franquette, whose owner is himself a wine connaisseur. (Take note, wine lovers, La Bonne Franquette should be your destination if you want the best wine to accompany your French meal.)
All throughout the night, we said hello to new acquaintances: @zaromcha @zeparisienne @behomebandb @bemyloveinparis @toujoursraison and many others whose names I failed to note down or whose cards I didn’t get. Next time, I’ll try to do better ;-)
And for the next ParisParis Soiree why not join in? I think you will enjoy it too.
