Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum (1)
Congratulations this week to the sommelier at Metropole Monte Carlo's Joel Robuchon. Salvatore Salerno, who's been working at the 2-star restaurant since March 2013, was recently selected as the 2014 Best Sommelier in Italy.
Ferocious storms and floods have battered the region recently and rain looks set to continue falling over the weekend. Consequently the Principality's annual non-stop fun run for charity, No Finish Line, will get off to a damp start on Saturday. Clubbers currently enjoying the Monaco International Clubbing Show (MICS) needn't be put off by bad weather, with the exhibition and parties continuing until Sunday. For music that's a little more stripped-down, The Troubadours promise acoustic pop covers at Slammers on Friday.
Finally, looking ahead to next year, dates are confirmed for Printemps des Arts, which celebrates Bach, Donatoni and Sibelius, and taking place at the same time is LikeBike, a new salon for those who enjoy cycling.
What's in the diary ....
Thursday: Business expo and awards.
Friday: Handel's Caesar.
Saturday: Teen clubbing.
Sunday: Operatic Romeo and Juliet.
Coming up next week, National Day cocktail, fireworks and holiday.
