Totally Frenched Out

Just another Thursday night in Paris

Last night, I met Jasmin & Opal at a bar to celebrate the arrival of this year's Beaujolais Nouveau. Veronica and their extremely tall and extremely funny friend Elaine joined us later on, and I was hoping to meet up with a fellow blogger as well, but the place was packed, so Zannah, if you showed up and couldn't find us, I'm really sorry!

The Beaujolais was going for the ridiculous price of 18€ a bottle (!) or 5€ the glass, but hey, it's a once-a-year thing, so what the hell. Though you'd think the 5€ per glass price tag would've been enough to stop me from waking up with a massive headache this morning, but I guess not. Though it might also not have been the best idea to mix the Beaujolais with a mojito and a whole lot of champagne either. And I may or may not have gone home with a really cute trilingual banker at the end of the night...

18€ for a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau is ridiculous. I like BN, but I would never pay that much for it.

I wouldn't drink Beaujolais Nouveau if you paid me 18€.
Oh well, as long as Americans are willing to waste their money that way, it helps the French economy.
