Queen of the college, of course, flanked by the indefatigable Ken and followed by his wrapped poodle she will animate with her team of friends our evening dedicated to the 1950s. Who will you be? Skipper, Stacie, Krissy, Midge, Allan, Blain, Raquel, Todd, Brad, or Lord ???

Rites (not last but ..maybe savages), saints of all kinds, relics and other artefacts, various confessions, sisters out enjoying we etc.. will take tea at the Borgias ... As long as it is not poisoned .

Carnival and bal de l'opéra
Vign_411

In 1830 the carnival of Paris supplants all others in Europe, including the venitian one. From Epiphany to Ash Wednesday it lasts a month and a half, the top point being  on the last ball of the opera, the one we invite you for our last evening ....


The social barriers have fallen, every one is going to dance, it is  time for freedom and transgressions, which is well reflected by the costumes (women in pants, men feathered, "engueunillés" or feminized) but also by the dances(of course, for a while, everyone wears clothes that allow great freedom of movements),  no minuets or quadrilles here but polkas, chahuts and frenetic dances ( the famous final galop).


More than ever everything is allowed ...

A Christmas eve in Ligoure with , fir and small gifts, log and turkey, woolen sweaters and red and green socks hanging on the fireplace .. yes in August

Well, it's for this summer, we're waiting for reindeer, goblins, snow and of course Santa ...


so  everyone brings a gift (homemade or not exceeding the value of two euros but nicely wrapped) to make a big pile at the foot of the tree, they will then be distributed blindly during the ball.)

Une soirée chez Gertrude Stein
Vign_montparnasse-entre-b-5a7ae44d30b3c

         "The lost generation" was this horde of American refugees in Paris between the two wars. So named by Gertrude Stein, they participated in the reputation of Paris as a leading city of the roaring twenties. Between "brasseries", artists 'workshops, writers' and bookshops, and "bals nègres" , let us breathe this desperate and magical interlude.
