The love that dare not speak its name (1)
School holidays started this week and there's plenty to keep the kids occupied. The Oceanographic Museum has a full program of activities, the Autumn funfair starts tomorrow, and there are workshops for young actors at the Theatre des Muses and for young chefs at the Foire de Monaco.
Oktoberfest continues in the Principality with celebrations moving to the Cafe de Paris beer tent tomorrow, when Bavarian entertainment, beer and food are on the menu. If sausages and sauerkraut aren't to your taste, take a visit to Le Loga restaurant, where the team was recently recognized for quality, welcome and cuisine with an award presented by peers in the Monaco hospitality industry.
Monaco's Scottish community is finalising the program for this year's Monte Carlo Whisky Festival, which includes weekly screenings of Scottish films during November. The first feature is Rob Roy starring Liam Neeson, and organizers are offering a nip of Monaco Blend Whisky and a portion of popcorn to audience members.
Finally, don't forget to turn your clocks back on Saturday night.
