Congratulations to Nico Rosberg who won the Grand Prix last weekend. Whilst all eyes were on the F1 track, Monaco's basketball team fought its last match of the season and took top place in the Pro B league. Following its promotion last year, the victorious Roca Team is now set to move up to the French national Pro A league.
One of the best views of the Principality from a restaurant is at the Chaumiere, just outside the gates of the Jardin Exotique. Chef Sylvain Etievant formerly worked in the Hotel de Paris's Grill, and took on the Chaumiere about four years ago. Normally open for lunches only, the restaurant is now serving dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 19:00, and you can reserve a table on +377 97 70 04 92.
Finally, Monaco celebrates Red Cross Day this weekend, with a grand bazaar, tombola and entertainment. All funds raised during the day will be used to help the Nigerian Red Cross, so if you have a moment to spare, please give your support.
