Some news from France LXXXXI

Here I am again lol!!! well cold here but nice, I hear delays at Roissy CDG due to the snow there, its snowing in Europe even up to Brussels I know earlier than usual for us ,see the weather ,nobody knows anything about it. Just come and enjoy it anyhow

I have a new geek to report to you, a wonderful new place highly recommended by my folks back in Paris, its opening today!!! (you read here hot off the press)  and I know the chef from his other place there.  The PENICHE L’IMPROVISTE, its a boat folks; Place Paul Delouvrier, facing quai de l’Oise, 75019 Paris of course. By chef Jean-François GUY who also do Nuances in my beloved Versailles. He does cooking like mama used to make them home grown and fresh produce, a colored cuisine very inventive going from the Greece to Africa, to Martinique and the south of France.  And ,also, great jazz display of music . You get here probably by metro even if I do the car, but the closest are Line 7 : Corentin Cariou and Line 5 : Ourcq; here is the webpage with more info, enjoy it;

Here are from Le Parisien Paris area newspaper some nice photos of the snow going on now around there while we stay away and briskily cold but no snow lol!!!

The tallest Christmas tree in Europe, all 35 meters of it, is up at the Pl de la Concorde, Paris ,where else ho ho ho !!!  I will put the photo compliment free of Le Parisien newspaper…

Last night was great going with my boys all 19,19,and 20,5 into the local Vins et Biéres bar here in Auray, nice to drank some cold beers with the boys, and great sausages like taureau,noisettes,etc and beers like Duff’s from the Simpson’s fame ,Paulaner, Memminger, Bitburger, la mort subite,etc this is a unique place where you can taste and then buy; the webpage is under maintenance but they are all over and open for business, my store is at 9 rue d’irlande in the porte d’océane commercial shopping zone off the N165 exit carnac and quiberon but go direction Auray.

Lots of full season at the Opéra of the Chateau de Versailles,sublime, an event not to missed when in the area, like I said and repeat, Versailles its a lot more than a castle.  Look at the wonderful line up, you can change to English abover right, webpage

and Merry Christmas to all. Cheers
