Photo Show Opens This Week

by Meredith Mullins It has been fun to plan “Paris and Beyond” with my friend Richard Nahem. We have both been settled in Paris for eight years, and we both live to explore . . . and see things that have not been seen before. The exhibit opens this Thursday, September 25, at Le Galerie 102. Our […]

Summer’s Last Gasp

Summer isn’t quite over yet, despite the cool, wet weather in Paris the past two weeks. There are many events for the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Paris (August 1944), including a free sound and light show tomorrow evening commemorating the historic events followed by live dancing and a Bal Populaire (dance party) on […]

Free Museum Night!

The European Night of Museums takes place tonight. Dozens of museums in the city will be open late, many of them until midnight. Here’s the full list. And yes, the Musee D’Orsay is participating, so you can see this famous naked lady painting on your ramble.

Radio Free Paris

The spherical Maison de Radio France overlooking the Seine just south of the Eiffel Tower is home to the family of state-run radio stations in France (including my two favorites, the eclectic Fip and the only decent French rock station, Le Mouv’). But you can also attend live music shows as they’re recorded, including “Un […]

Learning French Free

There are lots of free ways to learn or improve your French language skills. My favorite is by listening to the radio. Tuning into the news on RFI, France Culture or France Info, all of which stream on the Internet, swells my vocabulary, seemingly by osmosis. It also familiarizes me with different accents and varying […]

Free: Food Dictionary Download!

Passé simple? No problem. Irregular verbs? Bring ‘em on. But when it comes to French words on restaurant menus, I’m forever. Have you, too, settled for the steak frites because you had no clue what aïgo bouido, gargouillau and macaire mean? Well, we’re finally in luck. The new Kindle e-book A French Dictionary of Food […]

The program is eclectic, with a mix of pop, jazz, punk, blues, folk, soul and rock music performers from around the world. >more summer […]

Trashy Lady

I like to think of myself as a good citizen of the city. I even clean up the square outside my apartment building now and then. But I did the opposite of what Carlos Danger would call a “solid” when I lugged an old mattress to the sidewalk outside my building, thinking (hoping?) someone would […]
