HOT OFF THE PRESS
Ooh la la- La Ola! Thirty members attended AGLR's annual end of summer beach party at the popular La Ola restaurant on Sète's beach. Drinks, tapas, lively conversation and a brilliant sunset were enjoyed by all.
Did anyone notice the number of Irish accents around town? Well, the Clann Na Mara was back with a following! Members of all nationalities could be found listening - and dancing a jig or two - to the popular Irish musicians at several concerts in Sète.
Summer was anything but quiet for the AGLR. Members got together to celebrate North America Day and Bastille Day, as well as meet at Catherine Vaskova's elegant cocktail party. Coffee mornings at Brasserie Victor Hugo drew record numbers, while bridge continued throughout the season.
What to look out for : Ole Pedersen's new season of hikes, cooking with Bénédicte and Francoise's monthly lucheons.
Members can be found most Wednesday nights at Zanzi-Bar, a popular jazz hotspot. Thursday coffee mornings at Brasserie Victor Hugo always draw a crowd and B'Cosse in Montpellier offers a weekly teatime French/English language exchange every Wednesday 5-7pm.
