3rd Annual Halloween Happy Hour & Pumpkin Carving Contest

Yes....Yes.... I know what you are all thinking. "Pumpkins in Paris. Bah-humbug! Its impossible!"

Well to surprise even myself, I have successfully carved pumpkins in Paris for the past 4 years! I swear it is true!

To prove it, I am going to host The "3rd Annual Pumpkin Carving Competition" at Thistle. Last year was insanely packed over capacity. This year we will take measures to control the crowd....

1. This year, it will be a private party. No riff raff and people not on the guest list. Please be sure to RSVP

2. This year we ask that everyone pay 3 EUR at the door or to the organizers. We are providing the pumpkins, markers, spoons, knives, etc.

The way it will work... We will divide up into teams 1-2 hours of mad carving, then the organizers of the American Group will be the judges. This ensures non-partisan results.

The Thistle Staff will also be concockting (spelling?) a noxious brew of Pumpkin Punch, to help the creative design ideas.

Please be early, there will be a very large turn-out.

    I arrived close to 7-730 and waited almost two hours before leaving. They were waiting for 100 people...and waiting...and waiting...I expected carving to begin before 9pm! Disaster and a waste of money.

    If we do not find pumpkins, there will instead be a "free" meetup at Thistle

    Everyone, please note that this will be a last minute decision. The only place that has carveable pumpkins in Auchan. However their supply chains are messed up and might not get them before Friday.

    I have seen a few smallish ones at the veg markets on Rue Lepic in Montmartre.

    ok. I have to ask for pumpkins sightings from you. The big chains I usually go to talk about transport and supply disruptions from the strikes! Has anyone seen any pumpkins in Paris?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
