I was born with the loser fever :'(
This place is quite an experience. The entire ceiling is low-hung christmas lights and it's loud and crowded and cheap. Two pieces of advice: 1. Don't go if you're not in the mood for a party. 2. When you're there with a group, tell them it's someones birthday (even if it's not) you'll be in for a treat. All around the best byob dinners I've had in the city : )
I went to one of the days and saw Jimmy Cliff. It was awesome! He performed in a small club-like setting, no assigned seats (actually no seats at all). The city has a great vibe during the annual festival, but you have to make reservations at least 6 months in advance!
This is a great place to stay if you're on a budget in Paris! Hostel prices but AMAZING location. Walking distance from the Louvre and right near the Saint Paul metro stop. Rooms are nice and the building is old and very pretty with a central courtyard.
I'm kind of obsessed with this show. It's fun if you like reality show drama, inspirational if you like things that tug on your heart strings, and actually informative if you're interested in fitness and nutrition. Try it and you'll catch the "loser fever"!
