Get cheeky at Paris' first naked restaurant, where diners eat escargot in the buff
Besides our private nude club affairs, I've also eaten in the buff publicly in Key West. May again this January, when we have our next reservations.
As for escargot, I first had it in 1979 in Communist East Berlin. A "friendship" dinner among the occupiers of divided Berlin, a division still in effect over 30 years after the end of WWII. Officers from the 4 powers of America, Britain, France, and the Soviet Union.
The Soviets (Russians mostly) hosted this one. Terrible meal, the coffee undrinkable. And one of the features was snail toast, the escargot all minced. I didn't want to eat it, but it would have been undiplomatic to refuse it.
It actually wasn't bad, compared to the rest of the awful meal. And back in the States I started to ask for escargot, and today enjoy it. I figured if it didn't kill or gag me that time, I could have it again. It's the only personal benefit I can think from my experience with the Cold War. Oh, and cheap wooden Christmas oraments from East Berlin. Along with lots of stories like this one.
