It’s high time to start thinking about where you’ll spend the weekend that you’ve been waiting for all week!
In March you can expect to have a good time with a touch of culture, a taste of gastronomy and a pinch of literature.
March, Spring is on the way!
It’s 11 am on Friday, the weekend is coming and you’re starting to lose focus. Your spirits are high, you don’t want to tap at that keyboard anymore and have started doodling on your notepad instead.
It’s high time to start thinking about where you’ll spend the weekend you’ve been waiting for!
During March you can expect to have a good time with a touch of culture, a taste of gastronomy and a pinch of literature. You dream of wild grass, meadows, bal musette (popular French accordion music) and of guinguettes (traditional French riverside cafes), then put on your flowery dresses because Spring in Paris is waiting for you!
Make your weekend a success
ON A FINE SATURDAY IN MARCH…
SATURDAY LUNCHTIME: FIND A PLACE TO EAT AND DRINK
Get your taste buds tingling by heading to La Buvette, a wonderful place where you’ll get delicious food, such as French toast, coq au vin and madeleines, in a trendy and rustic atmosphere. Yum!
La Buvette, 28 rue Henri Monnier, Paris 9ème (9th district) paris.ilovebuvette.com
SATURDAY, 2 PM: DISCOVER THE CANNIBALES
Why not take a walk on the wild side and discover some cannibales (cannibals) this weekend? Stay with me here…
Have you heard of Kadist? This Modern Art foundation is located in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, just a few steps from Abbesses. Like other foundations, its mission is to support young artists in creating their collections and in putting on exhibitions.
The foundation, little known to the general public, is pleased to present an exhibition on the subject of cannibals in this cozy and welcoming setting. Why cannibals and not some charming still lifes, you might ask? Because colonialism has provided us with a misleading image of cannibals. You need to step back and find out the truths of this little discussed subject. The exhibition offers film screenings, old engravings and contemporary drawings that will make you see cannibalism differently.
“Canibalia” Exhibition, Kadist Foundation, 19 bis – 21 rue des Trois Frères, Paris 18ème (18th arrondissement)… www.kadist.org

AND ON SUNDAY…
… 2 PM
Come and discover a selection of films directed by Canadian filmmaker Mark Lewis at Le Bal, a place usually dedicated to photography. These are strange and funny films that capture banal, everyday actions through silent sequence shots. This particular filming technique gives you the sensation of being totally immersed in the film, of running across the wheat fields or hovering above the Brazilian urban landscape.
Where does this mysterious sensation come from? The silent, poetic atmosphere that the films evoke. This beautiful exhibition, very different from those you’ve seen before, invites you to take a break, free your mind and dream…
“Above and about” exhibition, Le Bal, 6 impasse de la Défense, Paris 18ème( 18th district). www.le-bal.fr
ON SUNDAY, 5 PM, STILL AT LE BAL…
In this lovely setting, you’ll also find an adorable little café where you can enjoy a drink whilst watching the passersby.
Le Bal Café, 6 impasse de la Défense, Paris 18ème (18th district) .
SUNDAY, 8 PM: IT’S TIME TO SLEEP!
You’ve been waiting this blissful moment for some time… Are in your room, searching for a movie, with a blanket around your shoulders?
Why not watch “Blancanieves”, by Pablo Berger, a black-and-white silent movie inspired by the Snow White fairytale, which takes place in 20th-century Andalusia. It will leave you speechless!
Have a good week everyone!

THE LATEST DISCOVERY OF THIS WEEKEND
A good photographer, politically incorrect and a little bit rude. This is the perfect book to read for this weekend.
