abc wednesday —K is for "kir"

My fave thing to drink in Paris—to whoever thought of
adding white wine to creme de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur),
thank you.  This one was enjoyed here:
Chez Prune, just one of the popular places on the Canal St. Martin.
Forty years ago, no one came to this area, since it was the
known hangout of some very shady characters (literally, "les gangsters").
Now, it's been totally taken over by hip young people.

[To see more of the letter K, go here.]


  1. Casa delle Prugne...House of Prunes?Was this once a fruit shop?
    I've enjoyed your snapshots of Paris, and I look forward to your next trip across the "pond"...maybe to Venezia!

  2. I'll have to try kir!

  4. Hi Alexa, I'm glad that you had a great stay in Paris!

  5. I was in the hood last June and January but not here. Tant pis pour moi!!! Love you pics of course because we are such kindred spirits in Paris. SIGH!!!!

  6. Okay, I have been reading about this place for some time and have never been to this part of the Canal. I wish that I had been there to offer a toast to those blue skies! I am hoping for some of those in about 10 days!


  7. am definitely planning on going there on my next visit ! greetings from brussels

  8. Go for a kir with Champagne next time! :-)

  9. beautiful Kolor of the Kir -- and it tastes good. And what a great place to have it!
