photo: cafe's onion soupReaders of the online magazine who have not had a chance to attend a club meeting can become members of the club by inducting themselves into it in the privacy of their own homes, no matter where they live.

Even hungry members never order refills of onion soup.

First-time visitors who can find the club's café can sign the unofficial members' booklet, to become members. Generally, this has no negative effect on your universal rights as human beings or as readers.

The club has a long and colorful history and a great number of signed-up members after 41 whole meetings; including the ones with no members present.

The club is informal. There is no 'club poem' for you to learn. The club's unwritten and unofficial rules state quite clearly that the club has no 'dress-code.' There is no unofficial secret handclasp or 'high-fives-sign.' Non-readers of the online magazine can also become members. This has happened, usually by accident.

The 'Report' of the Last Meeting With a Report

This is now about four weeks old, so I can't see any reason for doing this unless you were at the 37th meeting and this is your first chance to check out how famous you've become by joining this exclusive club in Paris.

Club Fine-Print Suspended

This was threatened weeks ago, and went into force weeks ago. If you are a demon for boredom and want to read it again, or for the first time, please refer to 'Past Issues' or hit some ofphoto: virtual membership card the links to past 'Club News' pages such as the one below.

The Café Metropole Club Membership Card

Secretary's Note:-The following cannot be suspended because then you wouldn't know about the club's membership card. This is the Café Metropole Club's membership card. This rest of the small print concerning this can still be found on the 'Club News' page where it last appeared. I can tell you right now that having this card in your possession is not officially necessary, and it is unofficially not discouraged.

The Next Club Meeting

The next meeting of the Café Metropole Club will be on Thursday, 20. July, in Paris. This is Sainte Marina Day in Paris. If you need to celebrate this day all the same remember that after subtracting club time, there are still 22 hours left on this day for other celebrations.

What? Where? When? How?

Café-Tabac La Corona
2. Rue de l'Amiral Coligny - or - 30. Quai du Louvre
Paris 1. Métro: Louvre-Rivoli or Pont-Neuf
Every Thursday at 15:00, until 17:00. In non-continental terms, even in Paris, the times are from 3 pm to 5 pm.

The usual directions about the café La Corona which used to be here can still be found on the last 'Club News' page to carry it. The information missing here describes the club's location within the café La Corona. This can be summed up as: ask at the bar or go behind it into the 'grande salle.' The way is signposted.

See you soon - A bientôt à Paris,
