Just another defense against the universe (1)
Just a stone's throw from the Princes' Palace, takeaway ice-cream and snack outlet Palais Greem is extending its licence to include pavement seating. Down by the port, O Duplex has been closed for a few weeks now, with a "fermeture exceptionelle" notice, so if you plan a visit, phone first to avoid a wasted journey. Another restaurant you'll need to contact in advance is La Montgolfiere, where some of our readers recently hoped to dine at the start of the week. Usually a quiet evening for eating out, Monday was fully booked and our hungry friends had to try elsewhere.
On the events schedule this weekend, there are two sports meetings taking place over 3 days. Monte Carlo International Jumping, the annual horse jumping event in the port starts today, and tomorrow sees the return of the classic motor boat Riva Trophy. Enjoy!
