Annual Princeton-in-France cocktail - A Moveable Feast

The Roaring 20s came alive again in the Batignolles last Friday. IIP/PIF interns, some employers and members of the Paris Princeton community literally got a taste of Hemingway's Paris ...

Sylvia Beach's "Shakespeare and Company" where Hemingway borrowed books...

"Brasserie Lipp" where he loved to drink a cold beer and eat potato salad and cervelas with mustard. 

My amazing PIF interns, Nivanthi and Brian who helped me pull this off

The simple meal Hemingway enjoyed at home with Hadley at 74 rue Cardinal Lemoine

Chez Michaud, Hem enjoyed tournedos with sauce béarnaise and oven-baked potatoes, washed down with Châteauneuf-du-pape

The bar at the Ritz for dry Martinis and Sidecars...

Imagine Cole Porter playing at the piano...

Oysters, champagne and Pouilly-Fuissé at "Closerie des Lilas" where Hemingway wrote The Sun Also Rises and met with F. Scott Fitzgerald

Photo booth and 1920s props
