There was drinking champagne from shoes, dancing on bars, over the top costumes, non stop giggling and pure madness. As I wrote in 2008 the year of Florent’s closing:
This was not manufactured fun, where people show up and smile to give credence to a video game or a new phone in the hopes that the pictures will propel their marginal talents onward. It was the kind of fun where company and a genuine connection to location make all the difference in the world and you wouldn’t have it any other way.
Thankfully, this was pre-taking photos with your cell phone!
Watch Florent: Queen of the Meat Market if you are a little curious about the man who was the father of such alchemy.
