We snacked on beautifully presented treats and sipped delicious beers and teas. Between chats and familiar faces, we tasted some of the best things on the Holybelly menu – both savory and sweet.

A special thanks to the Pinterest France team for organizing such a margical soirée, everything about it was photo worthy.

We all know that scene in Amélie where she skips the stones, and we all know how fabulous it is to sit outside on a Saturday night in the summertime with a bottle of wine (if you don’t, you should go and discover the magic!). The hustle bustle of this area will have you trying to decide where to get a little coffee, and new places are opening up left and right and making it harder and harder to pick which spots you fancy most. The list below are a few of my favorite spots in this area, and worth a pick me up if you’ve got the chance.

Le-Kitsch-De-quelle-planète-es-tu-01Once upon a time when I lived in the Oberkampf area, this bar was one of my favorite places to go for Happy Hour. It still is today, even with a little bit of a treck.

Not only is the interior just the best and basically a knick-knack heaven at Le Kitch, but their cocktails have spunky fresh names. Even when not there for Happy Hour, and their drinks are very reasonably priced, and was a core spot while on my student budget when I first arrived in Paris.

I’d like to also add that this is the sacred location of the green nom nom cocktail that is named after Shrek. I’m not sure you can get much more awesome than that. So, obviously, when miss Rachel was in town, this was on our hit list.

Yelp Elite Soirée - Mel, Mich & Martin - De quelle planete es tu:1The most recent Yelp Paris Elite event took place at a soon-to-open concept store in Paris’s 12th district, Mel, Mich & Martin.

The evening had goodness from Odette, Helmut Newcake, Demory Paris, Toucan Bleu and more…. It was a night full of sweets and pretty things. Thank you, Yelp, for such a lovely evening out!

Crossing line 2 - De quelle planete es tu - 7In Paris, the metro lines offer routes across the city, as we all know. Sometimes I like to think about all of my favorite things that are across one line, and how they could be visited throughout the course of one afternoon.

This post is dedicated to a few of my favorite things across line 2.

Paris’s line 2 stretches from westward past the Charles de Gaulle Etoile all the way to Nation, in Eastern Paris. Along this route across Paris’s north end, you’ll pass residential areas, Montmartre’s starting point, the red light district, views of Paris’s railroads heading northwards to Belgium and Germany, and of course a few pretty damn awesome neighborhoods that are full of culture.

Along with my trusted Paris trotter, Anne, we started our journey with a refreshing drink at Le Bal Café, located right by Place de Clichy.

We were passing Chettinadu’s metro stop, and couldn’t resist popping by for a samosa or two and a Lion lager.

Crossing line 2 - De quelle planete es tu - 1After filling up on Paris’s best samosas, we hopped back on line 2 to head to one of Paris’s beer havens, La Fine Mousse, to meet fellow beer lovers Ana Clara and Yann-Yves.
