Cafe Rosa Bonheur in Parc des Buttes Chaumont, Paris

"What? A bar right smack dab in the middle of a park??"-I thought as I approached the long line and crowded outside patio of Cafe Rosa Bonheur in Parc des Buttes Chaumont, Paris. And "yes" was the answer that I received as I passed tons of men holding beer glasses, tossing their heads back in laughter, and wearing the most incredible gear! The line controller didn't speak much English so we decided to just walk on past. But after hanging out on the grass our thirst got the best of us so we went back to the line controller, batted our eyes, and proceeded to walk right in; in front of the sea of people waiting in line(don't judge! my bestie had to pee, hahahaha).

 After grabbing a couple of beers, 30 seconds of video, and a few photos we perused the crowd. Toward the end of our visit, my bestie decided to take a photo of me trying to hurriedly finish my beer(I don't really like beer) and as I leaned back this man attempted(and succeeded) in pulling a string off of my cutoff shorts! This silly event lead to questioning...Man-"So you know this is a gay bar, right?" Me-"Yes". Man-"Ok, well just don't think that you are going to find a man here!" And it's even more hilarious because my bestie was talking to this man's friend and the friend was saying the SAME exact thing to her...sheesh, can't a couple of cute girls just have a drink without strolling for husbands??!!

On that note: Enjoy the pics and vid!

He told me(in French) that "SOME" was a vitamin. I told him that I spoke English. He then laughed and said "Oh, that's what I tell the French because they don't get the phrase"....
