A Blogger’s THATLou

Well then, it does feel like an awfully long time since I’ve lingered on the Louvre, but I guess a week’s not so very long. This week I’ve been focusing on the Louvre from a different perspective – I’m very pleased to announce that this upcoming Friday, 23 March, we’re having our first blogger’s THATLou!

Kasia generously put me in touch with the blogging community in Paris and Forest Collins, of 52Martinis.com, is organizing the after-drinks where we’ll count up our score, have the THATLou prize-giving ceremony, and drink deconstructed martinis at her friend Christophe’s place, The Why bar, at 60, rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau 75001. 52Martinis — a blog, a meetup group, a lifestyle — is Forest’s very well written, edgy review of various cocktail bars around the city which she and her crew scout out each Wednesday. Needless to say, I am pleased as punch to be co-hosting this THATLou with Kasia and Forest.

Without naming names of bloggers (as not everyone likes their nom de plumes unveiled!),  the following will partake in the fierce competition of this Friday’s THATLou:
















And from this foray into the blogger’s THATLou two more THATLous have sprouted: a Kid’s Treasure Hunt on Saturday 7 April at 14h30, and a Parisian Entrepreneur’s THATLou, for Wednesday 25 April, at 18h30.

So yes, I look forward to returning to focusing on the Louvre from a content point of view, but for the moment I’m happily out on the THATLou trail…. Let the games begin!

  1. This looks brilliant! Sorry to miss it but am delighted that thanks to Out and About in Paris, I’ve discovered your blog.

    Cheers and look forward to all the blogger reports after the event. Happy treasure-ing!

  2. Daisy! I wanted to say THANK YOU so much for organising such a fun night tonight! My told my brother and his friend about it afterwards – and they were REALLY wishing that you would hold another public one (for non-bloggers!) before they left Paris next week. I think you definitely are on to something here, and visitors coming to Paris would be up for a cool treasure hunt! Especially those on a second or third visit to Paris (like my brother), or first-timers looking to see the key pieces of the Louvre in a fun and creative way (like his friend). In any case, I hope you organise another one when my brother returns!

    Will get in touch soon for that lunch / coffee / drink 🙂

    Thank you once again et bon week-end !
