Happy Beaujolais Nouveau 2013

24 11 2013

I have not written about all of my November events I want to write about but I am fast-forwarding for this topic while it’s hot. ^^

As with every year, my two good friends and I went out for a night of French dining on the occasion of the Beaujolais Nouveau Day but we couldn’t do it on the day and went out on the day after, on Friday, November 22.

We chose a new (for us) restaurant in Ogikubo owned and managed by a French chef.

Moving on.  We generally like to have just one glass of Beaujolais Nouveau.  It's enough. ^^

Moving on.  We said we were poor but needed another bottle of wine (we said we were going to do two bottles of red before we began) and were offered this.

It’s a great excuse to get together and be merry and we do it religiously every year but we always stick to having just one glass. 😉
