Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I propose to eat at Bistro des Batignolles, about a midway between the square and the boulevard des Batignolles on the on the rue des Batignolles, in the 17th, metro Rome or Clichy (we could meet for apero at a good portuguese resto on rue de rome, it's quiet and out of the way and not far). They do super good pretty cheap couscous at bistro des batignolles (careful, not the bistrot les batignolles) and all you can eat vegetables (pretty much, within reason), I haven't had good couscous I haven't made myself in a couple of years, they only do the moroccan pied noir stuff in La Seyne, not the same thing. I know for the Parigo this is probably a trifle but remember some of us come from very far. Actually I may eat there all week though I am staying near the jardin des plantes in the 5eme, at least at first.

After, I think we can walk or, if having too much boukha drunk, take the metro, to Kitty O'shea's, which is on the rue des capucins if i remember correctly, south of the opera station. the bartenders didn't used to speak french there, so this might make some feel at home (or not). alternately we could finish up at the moosehead (odeon), where i may just sleep over if the canadien are playing on satellite at 4am.

cheers. i'll be in an out of email et c. for the next week or so, but hit me with suggestions and i'll respond as soon as i get them, mig knows the email...
