1. Drinking "The New Paris" Walking Tour with Lindsey Tramuta
Join Paris-based journalist Lindsey Tramuta on a guided walk through the neighborhoods of East Paris. Through tastings at three different locations showcasing the latest in specialty coffee, craft beer, and natural wine, you’ll get a flavor for "The New Paris." Meet Lindsey in the heart of the trendy neighborhoods of East Paris. Explore a lesser-encountered side of the city and join her on a tour of some of the locations that have inspired her book "The New Paris", which highlights the variety and innovation of their respective industries. Begin with a visit to a local pioneer of third-wave coffee to discover its emerging role in Paris' renowned café culture. Smell and sample some of their signature roasts and perk yourself up as you begin your tasting journey. Next, take a tour of a microbrewery that brews its own craft beers onsite, one of the very few breweries that are allowed this exclusive privilege in the center of the city. See how they craft a variety of beers and taste a variety of their experimental and signature creations. Finally, head to a buzzing bar popular with the locals and try some of their cocktails or natural wines. Learn about how the biodynamic wine movement has been received (and understood) by Parisians and the wider population. Pair some samples with a range of tasty bar snacks to conclude your adventure. Originally from Philadelphia, Lindsey Tramuta moved to Paris in 2006. Since becoming a journalist and publishing two books, she has been committed to documenting the people and latest ideas that are shaping not only Paris and the rest of France, but the world.
