    our very favorite local restaurant just around the corner from our usual pied-a-Terre! They have perfect cheeseburgers, using slabs of parmigiana cheese….yummmm. And this is from someone who doesn’t like cheeseburgers! So glad you have discovered it. The owner sits at the bar every night with his dog, who hops up on a barstool and gets to share whatever is ordered.

      We have walked past it hundreds of times and never stopped! Will have to try dinner so we can see the dog. Bernie will love that.

      Hi Bonnie, so glad you are enjoying our escapades. I write about them every year but this is the first time to do an actual blog on my web site that is accessible to everyone. We need to get the Anniston gals together again!

      It’s a small world! Where did you say to take Bernie for the absinthe on his birthday?

        La Fèe Verte 108 rue de la Roquette. It is the other side of the Bastille near the Voltaire metro stop. We did not eat there, but the food looked and smelled good. And doing Absynthe was an experience! Since Bernie likes Pastiche I’m sure he would like Absynthe. It too is anise flavored.

          Wow, this is the neighborhood where Bernie was born. We don’t stray far from our roots, n’est-ce pas? Thank you and I now know how to spell absynthe.
