What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in French language and culture. Whether you are from one of the many francophone countries, someone who learned or is learning to speak French, or simply a Francophile who needs a fix, this Meetup group is for you. We're located in Edgewood, which is a convenient neighborhood and location for an in-town gathering. Come join, meet new people, see old friends, and have a heck of a lot fun doing it.

Let’s Chat At Georgia Beer Garden

Georgia Beer Garden

Let’s keep it casual and connect at Georgia Beer Garden. We’ll speak French (all levels welcome!) and we’ll talk about whatever! Please bring as many friends as you would like. I will post where we are sitting on the day of the event. Comment or message me any themes or icebreakers you’d like to see here in the future. You can drop in as you wish. I don’t expect you to stay the whole time, unless you want to. Hooray! If you like, come prepared with some icebreaker questions or an idea for a future event or location.

French-German Holiday Celebration

Alliance Francaise d'Atlanta

'Tis the season to be merry!
Join us for a holiday celebration with wine, hors d'oeuvres and French conversation (all levels are welcome). The event is free to attend and you are welcome to join anytime from 1-4 PM.

Arrive by MARTA
The easiest way to get to the Alliance Française (unless you live close by and come on foot) is by MARTA. Arriving at the Peachtree Center Marta station, follow the signs to the John Portman
exit then to Peachtree Street East. At the top of the tall escalator are doors leading into the Mall (also known as the HUB).
Once inside the HUB or Peachtree Mall Food Court, take the elevator to the Plaza level and exit onto the Plaza. Exit the elevator and go LEFT. The AF Entrance is located at the Harris Tower lobby.

Arrive By Car
The most convenient parking is the International Parking Garage Peachtree Center, located at 30 Andrew Young Boulevard. (Note: The INTERNATIONAL GARAGE also has an entrance AT 161 PEACHTREE CENTER AVENUE. Once parked you can cross the street on foot or take the catwalk on the fifth level to enter Peachtree Center. If you take the catwalk, continue straight after entering Peachtree Center crossing all the way through the hub until you find the elevator on your left. Go to the Plaza level and proceed to the AF Entrance.

Day 1

Welcome to Paris! At the airport arrivals hall, you’ll be greeted by your personal driver holding a sign with your name on it. We’ll meet up for a welcome reception and a chance for you to unwind after your long journey. Afterwards we’ll stroll around the neighborhood for an introduction to Rive Gauche (Paris’ Left Bank), Île de la Cité where Paris was born, and the medieval streets of the Latin Quarter. Dinner in a lovely neighborhood restaurant.

Day 2

A moveable feast...includes a visit to one of Paris’ most charming pedestrian streets, a guided walking food tour and wine tasting. The day concludes with Champagne & macarons and a view of the Eiffel Tower at night.

Day 3

Today we make our way to la Rive Droite (Paris’ Right Bank) for 18th & 19th century Parisian high elegance, including a visit to one of Paris’ lesser known museums, a stop at an open-air market, and a leisurely afternoon stroll through one of the most exclusive avenues of the capital. We continue with a walk to the Champs de Mars for an up-close view of the iconic Eiffel Tower. For the evening, we meet up for cocktails & jazz.

Day 4

This day is your time to enjoy Paris on your own, whether it is a visit to a famous museum, pampering yourself at a hammam or the luxurious Dior Spa, taking a cooking class, or people watching at a local café. The choices are endless. Meet Me in Paris can also help you plan a day trip to Versailles or Giverny for those who wish to visit these destinations. Or... come with me on a train ride for Champagne tasting in the world famous Champagne region! (minimum 2 participants).

Day 5

We’ll meet up in the afternoon and make our way to one of my favorite squares in the city and practice the art of “flaner”, a Parisian pastime which means to stroll or wander for pleasure. After a stop for a scenic view (with photo ops of course), we’ll have a “pause gourmande” (coffee and pastries) at a lovely Paris café. Later is a short Métro ride to the Afro-Caribbean quarter and to the village of Montmartre where artists like Picasso, Van Gogh, Renoir, and Toulouse Lautrec used to live and work. In the evening we enjoy an au revoir (farewell) dinner together, sharing travel stories and toasting new friends. À votre santé !
