sure Gilly, will do!

I also wanted to offer those attending Sunday 12th or Saturday 18th concerts in Gent to bring them some rather user friendly maps of Paris that the Galeries Lafayette often give to visitors (it's a map of the City with the main touristic attractions, that way you could prepare your stay in Paris)
if some of you are interested, I'll go and get a few maps at Galeries Lafayette, just let me know ;-)

Was just checking my Paris hotel booking and read the last 3 reviews written since June - the hotel has now become very dirty and mice have been seen in rooms and corridors...........
So, I need to cancel, and find somewhere else quickly.
Any suggestions, please, that I can try?
Thanks - Gilly.

hi everyone!
Just spoke to the manager of the place Judy had found for our pre and post concert meet ups, but now I need your advise/opinion:

that place (Kitty O'Sheas is an Irish pub, they have a room 'upstairs' that is booked for us, but with regards to food, they don't really do 'buffet' style like they told me when I visited, but all they do finger food (sandwiches and that's about it)
they offer 3 different kinds of 'sandwiches buffet'; obviously, the more expensive, the more there is to eat: 6 euros, 8 euros or 12 euros (12 euros includes desserts such as chocolate brownies or cheesecake), drinks not included
Lizzy, they can accommodate us vegetarians (I just have to let them know how many of us are)

the other option would be the Amercian dream (which I haven't booked), when I visited a couple of months ago, they said we could order food from their card , ie no set menu- but someone said the reviews weren't so good

both locations are within 200 meters of the Olympia Hall.

So, could you please let me know which you would rather go to

that's for the pre and post meet ups...

now, Maarten is having some lanyards prepared for the Paris shows (I really can't take any credit for those, he's doing everything, therefore they'll be perfect) but I'm taking care of the name tags. Could you please be kind enough as to PM me the names you would like to have written on the badges, where you're from and ideally your email address to - (for eg, I have quite a few XXX's husband, XXX's partner etc... and don't know how they would like to be ''labelled''
I have to let either place now by Sept 20th how many of us will be there....

Would any of you be interested in having a brunch on Sunday then a walk along the river banks, through the Marais to Bastille? the place I have in mind has a 26 euros brunch menu (but one can order only a croissant and a cafe au lait), just a walk, not a guided tour unless you would like me to look into that...
Alternatively, I've heard of 'gastronomic tours of Paris', but that wouldn't be for Sunday, if you would like to have a look at these kind of tours, here's a link ... =12&texte=

looking forward to hearing from you all, in the meantime, if you're on LC track, enjoy the shows (I know you will)
take care,

Hi Christelle,
Please count me and my husband in for the meet ups Pre and post on Friday the 28. Also the meet ups on Sunday evening. I am not particular about locations, but if you are asking....the Irish Pub gets my vote. We are both vegetarians too, but as long as we can get a little bread and wine we are fine-well maybe a little butter too!!
Yes on the Sunday morning walk and brunch.

Walk and brunch on Sunday sounds great. We're staying in the Marais - but not familiar with the area. Please keep me posted!

Hi Christelle

I don't get in to Gare du Nord till around 13:00 on Sunday so I may be a bit late for brunch? For the late afternoon/evening the 'Irish pub' sounds fine.

All best,

I would like to join the Saturdays Pre- and maybe Post-concert bash. Where and when does it happen. I am a bit confused following the posts.

Bonjour chers Cohenites!

You will find below the details of our meet ups in Paris

Sandwiches buffet and desserts (€12.00/person ; drinks excluded) at

Kitty O’Sheas ‘upstairs room’ booked for our private use -
10 rue des Capucines Paris 1 – just a few meters from the Olympia (metro Opera or Madeleine)
map kitty o sheas and olympia.JPG

Leave the Kitty O’Sheas around 19h15 to the Olympia – highlighted in pink on the map above(26 boulevard des Capucines)

And back there after the concerts for some drinks.

Sunday 30th September

12h00 for those who registered
(Barbara/Hydrogal and her husband, Curt & Joan/it’s4inthemorning, Mordy & Partner and myself) Brunch at
les Editeurs table booked under ‘Cohen’ – I hope HE won’t mind

English menu
map les editeurs.JPG

***** If you haven’t told me you would like to join us for brunch, there is still possibility for you to attend, but please let me know so that I can amend the booking*****

circa 14h00 leave the Editeurs for a walk along the river Seine, through the Marais to Bastille (around 1hr/1.5hrs walk) from there, either we take the bus to the Kitty O’Sheas or back to your accommodation for a quick freshen up

from 17h00 Kitty O’Sheas – upstairs room

NB Sunday’s concert starts at 19h00, therefore we’ll leave the Kitty O’Sheas circa 18h15

And back at the Kitty O’Sheas after the concert for some drinks

Attached is the link to our Paris transportation system
Please remember to buy tickets by the ‘’carnet’’ (10 tickets) that’s less expensive than buying them 1 by 1 (€12,70 for a carnet or €1,70 per ticket)there are also 1 day tickets and 1 day tickets + museum entrance, all to be found on the ratp website above.
sorry for the poor quality of the maps, I'll send those information by email to those who have provided me with their address before the end of the week.
As always, please feel free to contact me for any further information
in the meantime, I look forward to seeing you (some in London and Verona)
