This weekend the autumn funfair opens and the Toussaint school holidays begin, extending over All Saints' Day and Halloween. We'll be posting our listing of scary celebrations in next week's newsletter, and then it won't be long before organizers begin advertising their Christmas events. Stars n Bars is first off the mark this year, promoting a 3-course festive menu that includes apero, glass of wine and coffee for 60 euros per person. Alternatively you can hire StarDeck for 3 hours, with soft drinks, finger food, Christmas decorations and music for 35 euros per person. Email info[at]starsnbars.com for more information.
This week folkies, musos and hippies have been celebrating the Nobel judges' decision to award Bob Dylan this year's prize for literature. Sales of the musician's books and albums have surged since the announcement last Thursday and one of the 75-year-old's vinyls was spotted in the hands of a youngster on a Monaco bus. If you're an old hippie fan or a vinyl-loving hipster the most recent Monaco-based networking concept aims to capture your imagination. Kollection takes place every other Friday and encourages you to bring your own vinyl for the DJs to play. If you don't want to risk your precious collection, the organizers say there will be a library of old-fashioned records available at the event.
And finally, clubbers will have to find a new late night venue as JImmy'z closes from Saturday night. The club's facebook page claims it's "building a new story," so we're expecting a complete refurbishment of the interior.
