...a heroine of the Labour movement who brought in equal pay for women (1)

The Palace announced preliminary plans this week for 2023's centenary commemoration of Prince Rainier III's birth. To celebrate the birthday of the "builder Prince" on 31 May, there's to be a grand fete on the Rock with a giant birthday cake, a photo exhibition and a film.

In the Portier district, Table d'Elise restaurant plans to build on the success of its drag queen cabaret nights with a variety of themed events. The first, called Show Time, is set for this evening, Friday and Saturday, with a fixed menu cost of 95 euros excl. drinks. Coming up 27 to 29 October is Oktoberfest, when the price includes 2 pints of Warsteiner beer or a bottle of Alsace wine, as well as a shot of schnapps. Then from 10 to 12 November, Flamenco themed evenings. Check the Table d'Elise website for more information.

Alternatively you could feast at Blue Bay restaurant tomorrow evening. Monte Carlo SBM is organizing a 4-handed dinner prepared by Marcel Ravin and Shaun Hergatt. The set menu is 520 euros pp and reservations are being taken from 7.30 pm. Visit the event page for more information.

Following the Club des Residents Etrangers de Monaco (CREM) club house refurbishment there's to be a personnel change. Chris Dhondt is stepping down as Director and we wish him all the best in his next endeavour.

And finally...

Today is National Poetry Day in the UK so we're ending with the chorus from the song The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo, with a couple of small changes to bring it up to date. Not strictly a poem, but enjoy it anyway.

As I drive round town in my DB5
With an independent air
You can hear the girls declare
"He must be a Billionaire."
You can hear them sigh and wish to die,
You can see them wink the other eye
At the man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo.
