Le Beaujolais nouveau est arrivé! everywhere, worldwide.
DROP EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW AND CELEBRATE the arrival of the beaujolais nouveau!
a chance to celebrate le joi de vivre, as only the french know how. each year the beaujolais nouveau, a wine that is supposed to be drunk young (and, young we are! so drink we must.) cannot legally be sold, opened, or enjoyed until the third thursday of november. the wine signifies the end of the harvest, a changing of the seasons- a moment to celebrate the bounty of the growing season and to appreciate this beautiful transitional time of year with friends, family, and an endlessly half-full glass. to be in paris for this celebration is something truly sacred. until then, let’s celebrate wherever we are and behold our dear parisian family and raise a glass to what will be this transition- one of growing stronger, one of fighting evil with good, and recognizing that nothing will destroy our joie de vivre.
if you’re looking for a restaurant to celebrate, try le gamin on franklin in greenpoint to enjoy a 5-course prix fixe menu complete with a bottle of the baeujolais nouveau, live accordion playing, candlight and hay-covered floor. and celebrate. as the french do. 108 franklin st.
Dance Party at a Chocolate Factory, fine + raw in bushwick
