Le Repaire de Cartouche

Two years ago in December and new to Paris, I went (by myself) to The Night of the Hunter (La Nuit du Chasseur) event, sponsored by the food journal M.I.A.M.  A fistful of euro got you a pocketful of cartridges (cartouche), with which to exchange for small plates of game dishes and Champagne to enjoy while oggling the taxidermy specimens and stylish hunter's fashion.   And there I struck up a conversation with the Pseudo Grenouille, and learned about GFGFGWGT - the group having organized a Meetup to attend.  By the time we closed the place down, I had made my first (and still best) friends in Paris.

 Since M.I.A.M isn't organizing events any more (why??), the next best thing for the anniversary is a dinner with one of the featured chefs from that evening -  Rodolphe Paquin of Le Repaire de Cartouche.  While game is sure to be featured, there are other options to choose from.

    Richard, hi. It looks a a very cool event, thanks for posting it. How does it work? I saw you are the only one attending in the list. Is it an open event where anyone can get in? Then look for people wearing orange?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
