Wow, you have a great memory. I thought you might be renting that apartment http://www.lacigaleparis.com/take_a_tour.htm . It's great with the 2 full baths and a separate washer and dryer. As a matter of fact, we will be in that same apartment for 5 weeks this spring and will be in his other apartment for a week before that as it was already rented. It's been 7 years since we stayed in that apartment, but we enjoyed the area. We also enjoyed the Petit Marguery.

Yes I'm going with a friend and her SO (who is great at opening oysters, a passion of mine)And so a two bath was
imperative and my friend wanted a tub.
Thanks. Wish you were there the same time. I always wanted to meet you and Jean whom I keep in contact with. So many years
have gone by since those days.

I would love to crash your dinner, and would love to meet you Mimi! But, I think I am going to the circus that night: http://www.cirque-eloize.com/en/home (the show is ID)

Nikki, are you at the GTG Mon night?

Toucan, I will be there at the Monday, March 12 get-together.

But I believe there are several evenings available with Mimi and Miki. What night are you going to the circus? And that is something I hadn't come across, that looks like fun too.

What nights are you available?

Probably either the thurs, fri or sat. I need to get Laure pinned down on the circus as we discussed Thurs or Fri. I think she settled on Fri but I don't know if she has tickets yet.

We are going to Vaux-le-Vicomte Saturday, but could maybe join a dinner that evening depending on when we get back. Or drinks!

I'll try to get a more firm schedule.

I am so jealous! Usually go to Paris in March when I can afford it but this year I was talked into a cruise in September. Enjoy.

Hi Mimi, and all. I've been absent from Fodors lately, but was checking back in because of an upcoming trip to Paris in a couple of weeks. M- I'm so glad to see that you're going to Paris! And, small world, the owner of the apartment you're renting lives near me and is a friend-of-a-friend of mine! I've heard nothing but good things about his apartments.

Au Petit Marguery is one of our favorite restaurants! We've been there many times. It's a true classic- very traditional, and is a great place to have game or organ meats, if you like those. Their sweetbreads are to die for.

I wish I was going to be in Paris for the GTG, but we arrive the following week.

Wishing you a wonderful trip!

Hi Nikki! It's been a long time! I hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

I'll be there with my daughter March 18-25.

hi Marcy, Ironically, the owner was an email pal many years ago when we wrote about Provence. when he bought La Cigale
I couldn't afford it alone. He's selling the other apartment in the sixth.

Hi Mimi,

My sister will be in Paris the exact time as you. She would love to join you at the Comptoir. Are you going on Friday night, March 16? And if so what time? She is staying in the 5th and her name is Maggie. Let me know your thoughts.

thank you, Yipper
