Totally Frenched Out

Fon-do ya?

Last night, I joined the K&K band on their outing to the famous baby bottle/fondue restaurant in Montmartre. I have a photographic evidence, but forgot to ask people if they were okay with being published on my blog, so sorry, no pics of the attendees. It was crazy fun though, or at least what I remember of it. Note to self - 3 glasses of wine plus a kir on an empty stomach does not a sober Samantha make.

Kyliemac, this one's for you:I totally understand now why everyone said I should go for the ambiance, not the food. Check out that layer of butter floating over the goopy cheese:
Our waiter alternated between being cranky (Fondue Nazi, anyone?) and just downright weird. I wasn't really a fan. Also, tip for the ladies- if you go, make sure you pee beforehand, because you'll have a hard time convincing him to let you get up once you've already been seated. And don't wear a dress or a skirt, cuz there's a 50/50 chance you'll have to climb over the table to get to your seat.And here you have the requisite picture of me downing wine out of a baby bottle. (Second note to self - it's probably not a good idea to drink that much if you don't really know where you're going or what time the last metro is - thank God for Kendra!)So thanks for inviting me ladies - it was really nice to finally put names to some of the other people I'd heard on the podcast too. Next time we'll have to sit closer together though so we can chat more (though you do get points for making ingenious use of the magic pen)!

YAY! I'm so glad you had fun. Despite the crazy waiter. hehehe.
I have a handful of those magic pen notes in my handbag and I almost dread pulling them out to read them.
I can't wait to see the rest of the photos!

Looks like a fun time! I am curious of this wine in the baby bottle, I just don't think I would be able to drink it fast enough ;-)

Oh I heard about this place in 'Almost French'. Looks like it was a fun night but I think I'd be too shy to drink out of a baby's bottle but kudos to you for going along with the gag. It seems kind of like the craze for hookah bars, my mind is always wondering how are they sterilising those things? But I'm kind of a germaphobe...

I'm so glad you finally have some nice and positive people around you!

I just posted recently about my dinner dates. They tend to go downhill fast as yours looks like it did also. Thanks to mojitos and martini's in my case. Except we did not drink from a baby bottles but boobs were involved. Close enough don't you think? You really are having a good time. Happy for you.

Wonderful! I feel like each time I come back here to read what's going on with you, it seems like things just keep getting better and better!

Je suis ravie pour toi, Samantha. Vraiment.

It looks like you had fun. I have long heard of this place and I didn't know it still existed.

2. must bring more magic pens for passing notes.
3. walkie talkies also a possibility.
4. next time will be getting white wine so my tongue won't turn purple. you obviously knew what you were doing.

This is gross, but when we were having fondue last, my (French) cousin said, "Let's hope we don't end up sticking to our seats" lol
