LE BEAUJOLAIS NOUVEAU EST ARRI...STOP THE MUSIC






"A little Banana..."













"NON."






Stop the music! Wait a second!
I just heard that the Beaujolais Nouveau is not ready.
The third Thursday in November is the offciel date to celebrate since I can remember. When Les Halles was still a hole in the ground and I was doing odd jobs at Mother Earth's on the rue des Lombards,( not the first American restaurant in Paris, but the grooviest),
The wine distributor for Mother's, let me sample it the day before the official designated date.
I still remember his blue overalls, white hair, and red face as he as he unveiled the bottle from
under his jacket - nearly a capital crime.
The festival has since grown to a world wide sensation. some restaurants in New York had it delivered via the Concord - so to be the first.
This year, a vineyard announced that because June was quite cold, the harvest was late. They advised their customers to wait until it's really ready.
What next?

Parties are scheduled in all the caf├ęs in Montmartre just the same and the folk will drink the recently harvested wine
green as it is.
