The Weekend Guide II

It’s the weekend again! And, it’s finally (FINALLY) hot & sunny outside! Paris has gotten over its funk and is making up for those 8 months of winter with some sunshine and plenty of fun happenings this weekend.

1. Frenchie To Go & Terroirs d’Avenir Block Party! June 9, 12pm-5pm

To welcome Frenchie To Go to the block, the Frenchie family and Terroirs d’Avenir are hosting a block party this Sunday from 12pm to 5pm. Rue du Nil is home to Frenchie, Frenchie Bar à Vins, Terroirs d’Avenir markets, and now Frenchie To Go- an airy, gastronomic take away spot serving American-style breakfast and the amazing pulled pork sandwich we all love at the wine bar every day from 8-4pm. FTG also has La Perle beer on tap and some affordable wines by the glass. They even make their own home-smoked bacon and homemade iced tea. I’m in love already!

2. The Fish Club is open!

This is the latest opening by the Experimental Cocktail Group- a tapas-style wine & cocktail bar inspired by South American flavours, as seen in their specialty- fresh tiradito. Tiradito is the cousin of sashimi, and the Tiradito Verde at The  Fish Club is killer. They also have Spanish classics like croquetas de jamon and papas fritas, plus some American classics like the lobster roll and crab cakes. Walk in and hope for a seat at the bar, or reserve a table upstairs, as this place is definitely going to be packed this weekend.

3. Yoga at Wanderlust

Before you head over to the Frenchie/Terroirs d’Avenir block party, start your Sunday with a yoga class on the deck of Wanderlust overlooking the Seine. Every Sunday morning at 11am Paris’ yogis gather for a bit of zen before the party starts at Wanderlust and lasts all through the night.


4. Must visit at the Marché aux Puces: L’Eclaireur Village Vintage and Ma Cocotte

The big antiques market to the North of Paris has two exciting additions as of late- This Saturday, June 8, L’Eclaireur will open “Village Vintage” there with a curated selection of vintage designer clothes as well as amazing vintage interior items.  While you’re there, check out the newest chic restaurant to install itself in the marché- Ma Cocotte designed by Philippe Starck. The big patio is perfect for enjoying lunch en terrasse.
