All work and no play...

Having spent all of the month of August so far reading and reviewing for my Master's exam, I decided it was high time for a break. And what better occasion than a friend's last weekend in Paris to really hit the town?

We started with an all-you-can-eat Chinese dumpling bar in the 15th that a friend of mine had recommended a while ago and that I only finally got around to trying. It was in a deserted, rather dead area, but the food and service was great. And cheap! 10 euros per person for an endless array of flavors of dumplings--boiled, steamed or fried--and 2.50 for the world's largest Tsingtao beer bottles. I thought this bridge on the walk home was pretty cool:
Then we headed to The Moose: the favorite (Canadian) bar of our (Canadian) guest of honor, Jason.
At The Moose they were showing--what else? American baseball! Go Sox!
Once Jason had drank his fill of farewell shots (compliments of his favorite bartenders, who were as sad as us to see one of their most loyal customers leave) we hit up a latenight 80s themed club, called Romeo. (I know the 80s seem to be coming back into style in the States, but here in France, they never went OUT of style.) The 10 euro cover included a pretty decent mojito, and if you were born in the 80s you got a complimentary glass of champagne. Jason had picked up a turquoise straw hat at the Moose, and it made the rounds on the dance floor. Here's Tom busting a move:
And, unarguably the best shot of the night:
