What's new

At this time of year I start to ask myself why I'm sitting at my desk and not on the beach. And then I remember - it's too hot and there are too many tourists about! I shall content myself with a stiff gin and tonic after finishing the newsletter, preferably the Pack of Hounds brand which we tasted with Bradley Mitton and his fabulous Club Vivanova a few weeks ago. The gin is available at the Yacht Club's Wine Palace, and at Rampoldi restaurant.

Our curry expert visited Indochine (see 29 June newsletter) last week and gave it a non-committal "okay". In order to fully understand this underwhelming review, I should mention that our correspondent's preferred curry strength is British Indian restaurant madras, so in comparison the Monaco takeaway's chick pea dish was rather lacking in taste. Still, it's in a handy location and open until 22:30.

Gerard Depardieu has canceled one of the two concerts he was due to give at the Salle Garnier next week. The 26 July performance won't take place due to reasons the French actor said were linked to his agenda. If you already have a ticket you can either swap it for the concert on Thursday 27 July, or ask for a refund.

And finally, fans of Avenue31 will be pleased to know the restaurant has reopened following a refurbishment. Now, I shall get back to planning my holiday over a G&T.

What's in the diary ....

Thursday: Dance performance.
Friday: Carnaval on the Rock.
Saturday: Fireworks and music.
Sunday: Organ music.

Coming up next week, Joss Stone, Mamma Mia! and Luc Besson sci-fi.
