The lady's not for turning (1)
The weather may have turned cooler, but the events calendar is hotting up. Yesterday Monaco International Clubbing Show (MICS) returned for three days of industry networking and three nights of official partying at Twiga.
If your idea of partying leans more towards lager and traditional German drinking songs, note that the Oktoberfest beer tent returns to Cafe de Paris tomorrow. Lederhosen, sausages and sauerkraut are de rigeur.
A new networking club is setting up in Monaco. Urbano is a London based business network that organizes events to put a "diverse range of companies and people in a room". Organizers believe that no connection is worthless. The first two events in the Principality are a dinner at Address and a lunch at Avenue 31.
Monaco is supporting better services for commuters on the number 100 bus between Nice and the Principality. Route managers are to increase the frequency of journeys during peak commuting times, and the timetable hours are to be extended. Buses are now starting from Nice at 5:35, and the last departure from Monaco is 21:00.
And finally, if you've always wanted to give up smoking the Government aims to help you get started on 1st November with a "Moi(s) sans tabac" campaign. Inspired by Public Health England's "Stoptober" campaign, the initiative has been launched by the French public health agency. Quitters should register on the French language Tabac Info Service website and will be provided with encouragement, information, a telephone support number, mobile app and help kit.
