Napoleon - My Fake Diary
Tuesday, 21 August 2012
On a blog by someone called Zogat this past week:
By Sarah Freeman: We would love an invite to Julia Child and Napoleon Bonaparte's joint birthday party. We imagine it would entail cou co vin followed by a few photos of the pair standing shoulder to waist, until Napoleon darts off early because of a military coup, but Julia doesn't notice because she is on her fifth glass of wine.
Stereotypes aside (as well as they fact that they were born 143 years apart) today marks the anniversaries of both these historic figures' births. Two Chicago restaurants are honoring the day in their own way.
Start at Maison, which is giving a free picnic lunch to the first 100 guests starting at 11:30 AM. The dine-in meal includes demi-baguette, pate, mixed green salad, eggs mayonnaise and accompaniments. For those who miss the freebie, all wine will be on tap for $2.43 (Napoleon's age) until 11 PM.
That is nice!
