A Week in Paris. Wednesday that same week...



So Monday evening was all about French history.
Wednesday was the monthly Canadian meetup group at Le Sous Bock http://www.tripadvisor.ca/Restaurant_Review-g187147-d779561-Reviews-Le_Sous_Bock-Paris_Ile_de_France.html in the 1st. It is a casual tavern with 20 beers on tap and over 300 bottled.
20 beers on pressure over 300 bottled beers and 40 different types of whiskeys.

Sous -bock comes from the word for coaster, to keep the condensation from dripping all over the table, especially if you consume several beers!
So tough place to be a wine drinker but likely a good choice for a Canadian meetup.
Here is the strangest thing: there are no Canadians at these meetups. This month the organizer, one guy and me; everyone else is from France.
Now I love French people, and like to hang out with them. However when I go to a Canadian meetup it would be nice to well you know, see some fellow Canadians. Just like if I go to a "learn to speak French" meetup it would be great to have French speakers there. You get my point.
So, a nice evening sitting with French people speaking French, mostly to themselves.
What more can I say?

  1. Word, sister. I don't want to seem unwelcoming, but why are they there? What is their motivation? Are they fans of Canada? Are they looking for Canadian friends? I don't get it.
