This Month in Paris
A cruise on the Seine, kissing on the Eiffel Tower, a show at the Moulin Rouge, dinner at the Tour d’Argent...despite the tired clichés, Paris still has all the right ingredients for an unforgettable rendez-vous that fits any couple’s definition of romance.
Paris is the perfect city for celebrating la vie en deux, with all of the requisite clichés covered:
La Vie Parisienne for a fun and sexy alternative show to the Moulin Rouge (en français).
Pinup Attitude for burlesque strip-tease classes with Sugar DaMoore.
Valentine's Bellies on Foot themed food tour with La Cuisine.
Valentine's Day on the Eiffel Tower with dinner, wine & cheese, or chocolate & Champagne.
And if you're already sick of red hearts and chocolates, get your tickets for the Paris Rollergirls vs Royal Windsor Rollergirls on February 16th. Because what's more Anti-Valentine's Day than a women's rollerderby match?
