The Cirque Plume (Plume Circus) celebrates its 30th anniversary at La Villette

The first performance of the season for Cirque Plume takes place today at Parc de la Villette in Paris. This spectacular show is filled with magic and poetry and celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. The whole production is centered around one theme: Tempus fugit? A stroll on the lost path. Through acrobatics, humor and music, Cirque Plume invites the spectators to ponder about time and the passing of time. A wonderful show that will be enjoyed by adults and children alike. Please note that there is no intermission, which is why it is not recommended for children under 5.

Cirque Plume, September 24 through December 28, 2014.
Wednesday through Saturday at 8pm, Thursday at 7:30 pm, and Sunday at 3pm.
Full rate: 35€ / Reduced rate: 28€ / 18€ for children under 13.

Dessance : the den of sweet delights

Dessance is a new place well worth a visit for everyone with a sweet tooth, since it is the first ever dessert bar in Paris. The concept is simple and inspired by New York’s dessert bars. Nothing salty on the menu : this gastronomic restaurant of sugary cuisine only serves desserts. The elegant decor, conceived by architect François Joseph, is simple and light, with warm wood tones. For the best possible tasting, follow this three-part menu : mise en bouche (sweet hors d’œuvre), individual dessert or carte blanche for 2, and mignardises (sweet petits fours) that are, so to speak, the icing on the cake. Two drink choices, one with alcohol, and one without, are suggested to enhance the menu. One of the house specialties is the smoked baked Alaska (omelette novégienne fumée) : vanilla ice-cream with lightly salted caramel, hiding in a delicious Italian meringue flambéed in Whisky, nestled on a chocolate biscuit. Dessance is definitely a sweet surprise !
