A lively bloggers’ meet-up was held yesterday evening at Living B’art, a restaurant in the 18th arrondissement.

The event was organized by Andi Fisher of Misadventures with Andi and Erica Berman of Haven in Paris and HiP Paris, and attracted an interesting group of Anglophones who blog for the most part about their observations about and experiences in the City of Light. The two generous cheese platters that were served, compliments of Andi and Erica, permitted us to order wine by the glass. (The restaurant does not have a license that allows it to serve wine without food.)

One the bloggers, Andi, lives with her French husband Jany in Berkeley, California. Jany speculated that women are better at communicating then men, which might account for the fact that only one male blogger (me) could be counted among the fifteen or so female bloggers present.

By 7:30 p.m. the restaurant was filled with people happily chatting away.
