Stuff Parisians Like

All French people agree that Parisians are not normal people. Provinciaux deem that Parisians are below normal, usually beyond repair.

No matter how sorry the lifestyle of the Paris people may be, most will develop advanced reality-dodging strategies to convince themselves that they are not a part of the populace (“C’est tout petit mais le séjour est super lumineux“, “Le quartier est génial.

The ultimate destination of their dodging artifacts is to be found in the realm of culture. But a city of impoverished wannabes gets the cultural and intellectual life it deserves: that of followers. The adjective that epitomizes this evolution is “décalé“.

Tottenham Court Road is lined with an array of shops selling the latest electronics and technology – a hangover from the 1950s and 1960s when it was a mecca for old World War II radios and electrical equipment – so perhaps a side-street from this road was a fitting venue for a unique blind tasting with two of today’s most innovative internet wine companies, FindWine and Naked Wines .

Tonight, I was lucky to be invited by Miss Vicky Wine at her latest Paris Wine Tasting. It was in a trendy bar packed with people: fashion crazies with jaw-dropping outfits for an exhibition opening, rock’n’roll groupies for a trendy gig and wine lovers for Vicky’s wine selection. Oh! And a fat bulldog called ‘Venus’ was everywhere to be seen. Everybody had headed out there – after a long day at work, despite the public transport strikes and the chilly night – so as to share one (or more) glass(es) of wine. And it felt good to be there.
