What's new

 
It's a 3-day weekend coming up since the Fete Nationale falls on Monday. Celebrations already started yesterday, with a show for children, but we're looking forward to the fireworks on Sunday evening, and a day off on Monday.

Of course, once National Day festivities are over, the Principality begins preparing for Christmas. First off the mark is Mission Enfance with its Braderie de Noel, swiftly followed by the Mairie turning on the Christmas lights.

Looking further ahead, it's the Ecumenical Kermesse on 1 December. Organizers are looking for items to sell, especially books and electronic gadgets. You can help by donating your time and/or your used items.

Monte Carlo SBM has revealed the winner of its annual in-house Buche de Noel competition is Mathieu Louis of Le Grill restaurant. The winning log is called "Etoile sablee, ananas et citron vert," and was chosen in a blind tasting by a highly trained jury. It feeds eight people, costs 70 euros, and is available from the Hotel de Paris from 20 December.

And finally, one of our favourite local artists has a new exhibition starting tomorrow. Olivia Brazier's paintings are on show in Monaco's Galerie des Pecheurs (see diary below for link), and another is planned during December in Beaulieu (more details to come). Check it out.
 

What's in the diary ....


Thursday: Vivanova gin party.
Friday: Les Pecheuses.
Saturday: British Invasion Comedy.
Sunday: Jazz concert.
 
Coming up next week: original Marlene Dietrich, Christmas braderie, and Babette's Feast VOSTF.
