Here are some news and things to do this February in Paris

SIDEWALK CAFES: have become a trend if you’ve been following my daily videos on instagram I show you snippets of real life daily at the moment. Specifically Friday evening before our 6PM curfew I went to the post office here in Montmartre and showed you a few streets and bars that actually had lots of people out sidewalk drinking. I suppose the restaurant owners are taking advantage of the click and collect idea, and many customers are using this as an opportunity to socialize.
