Their names are not here because they have had no time to get psyched up to become members of this club that they first heard of downstairs from Marilyn who overheard them speaking in French - but they may come back next week now that they understand the idea.

Except for Susan the new member and the two lady non-members, today's club members are pretty much the same as last week's. The difference is the café is not full of Toussaint revellers, so it is possible to say that today's is the loudest club group on record.

I hope this explains why I cannot attribute names to the following quotes, which came too fast for me to look up and see who is saying:

"If the candidate from Texas wins, I won't go back to the States."

"That's okay, we'll come and visit you in Versailles."

"I'm a registered Republican but not by choice. When I moved to New Jersey, there were no Democrats there."

"I would have sacrificed one candidate from Texas to avoid one Hillary," said a member who is a resident of neither Texas nor New York State.

Changing tone a bit, Charles says he is thinking of going to cooking school in Paris. His wife wants him to take the wine course instead, but he thinks he prefers cooking - knowing full well wine is in it too.

A short way into the club's overtime period, Carolyn asks me how to get to Versailles. A question like this is aphoto: susan, marilyn, dan relief, because it is about the only one I can answer today. "Walk across the river to the RER station at Saint-Michel and take the 'C' line to get there."

Before I can pack up the club's semi-official paraphernalia, Charles fixes me with an accusing eye and wants to know why I didn't run the Yves-Saint-Laurent 'Opium' poster as a 'poster of the week' in Monday's issue of Metropole.

Still more animation by Susan, Marilyn and Dan.

I tell him that out of respect for Japanese readers, Metropole doesn't show posters advertising nudes, booze or perfume passing as dope. If readers really want to see these, they have to come to Paris - which is full of unpublishable visual thrills.

The 'About the Café Metropole Club' Page

By consulting the 'All Past Issues' file you can find out all about this club's history. The link is to all past issues with 'Club Reports' plus hundreds of other unrelated 'past issues.'

Actual real current details about your Café Metropole Paris Club in Paris - as opposed to numberless 'past issues' - can be found on the 'About the Café Metropole Club page,' which is about your club and is accessible here, and from each issue's 'home' page.

This 'about' page contains vague notions about everything free concerning the club - which is everything. You actually don't need to know any of this, unless you want to impress your friends and neighbors by being a member of the only 'real' Internet club in the world for readers of Metropole Paris.

Date, Time and Location of Next Meeting

The club's next meeting will be on Thursday, 16. November. If you are in Paris this is Beaujolais Nouveau Day as well as Sainte-Marguerite's Day, which is not a public holiday but can be celebrated in La Corona if you wish to do so.

Except for this, all of the rest of Thursday 'before the club' meeting remains free for your otherphoto: charles eitel important Paris activities concerning Beaujolais Nouveau and will be followed by 'after the club,' when you can continue these vital activities.

The café La Corona meeting place will again be open just as it is every Thursday - and the time for your club's meeting remains from 15:00 to 17:00 - which is also known as 3 pm to 5 pm - which is the same as the big hand on the 12 and little hand on the three.

Charles Eitel wants 'Opium' in Metropole.

Come to the next meeting during its official hours. If you come at some other time the club's café will still be in operation, but will not have any members mentioning historically important phrases like 'Election of the Week' and unpublishable 'Posters of the Week' that are the hearty fare of some club meetings.

The café's location is:

Café-Tabac La Corona
2. Rue de l'Amiral Coligny - or - 30. Quai du Louvre, Paris 1.
Métro: Louvre-Rivoli or Pont-Neuf

A bientôt à Paris,
