champagne saturdays

The Parisian must have been feeling pretty bad about last Saturday. You see, the Saturday after my birthday (last Saturday), he closed the bar early when I was supposed to be celebrating my birthday there with Le Villagers (he has the habit of closing the bar on a whim to go home and play Wii). I'm thinking he was feeling bad because this past Saturday night The Husband and I dropped in for a quiet drink and he asked us if we would like some Champagne to celebrate my birthday.... um, oui.

So the four of us shared a bottle (Mrs Parisian was there too) and it was perfect timing because as soon as we finished, Brother-in-Law, Child Bride, and Honey Jr arrived.  Which meant Leffes all around. Except for Child Bride. She had a large glass of milk with a pink straw (I don't think La Petite would appreciate the Leffe... she's due to make her debut into the world in a few weeks and is probably all about the milk).

But back to that Champagne. I have a sneaky suspicion that The Parisian had alterior motives for pouring me that Champagne (like it wasn't all about me... shocking I know). Like maybe he was testing it out for next Saturday. Like next Saturday, as in  Brother-in-Law's wedding reception next Saturday. That's right. Wedding reception. Next Saturday. At Le Petit Bar.

It's gonna be a doozy.

  3. Awesome! I say we have a trade for a couple of weeks, just to try out each other's lives. Maybe you could just let me be a fly on the wall and share your champagne with me.

  4. Well, I've been drinking lots of Leffe Ruby with this baby, he/she loves it! (in moderation of course).

    I wish I owned a bar and could just buzz off whenever I liked. Sounds like an ideal occupation. I'm sure the reception will be a blast!

  7. Oh, and the stories you will tell! Can't wait to see the photos and hear about the ruckus...

    Glad that he doled out some Champagne whether it was guilt (not likely) or a test of the Champagne (probably)

    Bisous,

  8. Sara, you crack me up calling her Child Bride... LOL! Hey, I'm thinking, why not be the guinea pig for Champagne? And all the different ways you can have it! Why, you could've been there all night. Just give Child Bride her binky, put her to sleep on the bar... the possibilities are endless.

Totally cracking up at the cafe today... ps its 'french' but their chocolate croissants are totally embarrassed they are here at a so called "french cafe" but I am happy that the brazilians are trying....Edith Piaf is singing though so thats really all i was looking for! Cheers to Champagne Saturdays and child brides

  12. Who could say no to free champagne? Sounds like a fun evening! I'm kind of jealous of the pink straw situation. I love straws.

  13. p.s. I know you're sick of winning these things, but too bad! You're one of my few blogger friends :)

    You've won a Stylish Blogger Award over at The Everyday Life of a Young American Girl in France!!

  14. A bar in rural France, a colourful cast of characters, and beers all around? Sounds wonderful! I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog :)

  15. I would definitely offer myself up as official taster if the Parisian wants to try out any other bevvies...

  16. Can I second that comment of crushing on your life? It seems perfect. Maybe Mr. A should take me to a foreign country and force me to live there.
    His family is descended from Lithuania, though. There is nothing there.

  17. Dear Sara,
    yes I also want to go in Le Petit Bar!
    Maybe next summer!
    Bisou, Babi

  18. I'm keeping fingers crossed Child Bride doesn't steal the spotlight and go into labor during the reception next weekend. One of the joys of NOT being prego... the ability to drink, wear cute clothes and heels, and dance the night away at Le Parisien's bar. Cheers!

  24. I gotta say...I fear champagne. Worst hangover of my life. I haven't touched the stuff since. BUT-I am excited to hear about the upcoming party over there in France!

  27. Since we're on the subject of champagne, have you tried ginger champagne? OMG! Sara, you must take pictures of the reception at the bar and share them with us. You just must!

  28. Well whether he was pouring champagne for your birthday or for the upcoming wedding, it was still champagne! Glad you enjoyed it. What an entertaining tale your blog is! xx

  29. Sounds like a fantastic Saturday...& really hope your sister-in-law to be is doing ok (saw your tweet today). Wishing her a very, very speedy recovery, xo

  30. That sounds so fun!!! And hey, free champagne is free champagne, even if you are just the unofficial tester :p
    I can't wait to read about the wedding!!

  31. A cute little bar in a cute little French town where they give you free champagne sounds quite nice. Almost as nice as the Celtic Cajun bar and grill by my house. Not quite though because how do you beat that duo that I know I always think go hand in hand. Irish whiskey with an order of jambalaya?

    Sorry, I guess I shouldn't be trying to make you and your romantic French life jealous....

  32. Love...Happy Birthday!
    Sounds like we we fun! :-)
