viva la france

with the upcoming bastille day fetes taking place this weekend, i thought i would mention a few other frenchie events going on as well as a great little french restaurant for you to check out.

this saturday night at vinideus, french chanteuse sophie delmas will be performing. i'm not familiar with her music but i'm always looking to hear new music so i thought i would go check her out. vinideus 4759 ne fremont

another event taking place this weekend is the showing of the agnes varda film "cleo from five to seven".

chez joly is a french restaurant that opened about a year and a half ago. their menu offers up many of the french classics and boasts a great wine list as well. look for the restaurant in the upcoming season of leverage that is being filmed around town.

  1. Hey there H.G.
    Thanks for the great week-end ideas.

    Kudos to whom ever you are.

  2. no dribble drabble for you.
