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?
