What's new

This weekend's focus is better management of the planet, starting today with Global Recycling Day. In Monaco the Societe Monegasque d'Assainissement has launched a competition called Game of Tri to test your knowledge. You can play any time from today to 11 April, with a first prize of a boat trip in the Pelagos sanctuary.

On Sunday the French Office National des Forets (ONF) is celebrating UN International Day of Forests by organising a walk around Mont Gros (where the paragliders jump). It's free of charge and open to all with a reservation. Within the Principality a stall at the entrance to Saint Martin Gardens is promoting actions undertaken by Monaco and the ONF.

The following day is Monaco Blue Initiative and the start of Monaco Ocean Week. There's a mixture of virtual and in-person events, culminating in a talk by Boris Herrmann who recently represented the Yacht Club in the Vendee Globe round-the-world solo, non-stop and without assistance race.

In brief

The Observateur de Monaco has an in-depth article about Xiaoxin Yang, who will be heading to the Tokyo Olympics to represent Monaco in table tennis.

With several Italian regions in lockdown, Nice Matin reports on what to expect if you need to visit Liguria.

Another three restaurants were recently closed temporarily for breaching Covid regulations: Beefbar, Tre Scalini, and Pulcinella.

And finally...

Hot on the heels of Mezze Kitchen (see And finally... last week) a new restaurant called Tiny Thai has opened in the premises formerly known as Itagliani. A 2-course set lunch is available with a glass of wine or beer, 19 euros all-in, served at the table. You can also order lunch and dinner deliveries "a la carte" from an ever-growing list of options on Riccardo Giraudi's dedicated website. Enjoy!

(1) This week's quote is the first line of L'Aprés-Midi d'un Faune, a poem by Stéphane Mallarmé, born this day 1842. It was the inspiration for the musical work of the same name by Debussy.
