"What manner of public entertainment is put on in Beaune?", I hear your plaintive cries. Fireworks? Crackers? Orchestras? DANCING IN THE STREETS????
I'll tell you the answer, but only in the strictest confidence: NOTHING! Yes, nothing. Not the smallest hoot of joy. Nix. Nil. All bars and restaurants closed. Not a squark!
The four Roses were confined to quarters in theri homely apartment, where a multitude of videos were played (eg episodes of "The Fall" and the "Wallflower" movie) and we did a jig or two at midnight. Otherwise we had a wonderful time on our respective Pat Malones. A memorable New Year's Eve and one never to be repeated.
PS I had a Huge Hug with Dear Jude!
The photo shows the Three Girls in the only open bar in all of Burgundy at about 9:00 pm on NYE.
PPS. If you want an exciting night on. NYE, do not plan to come to Beaune.
