Dear Parler Paris Reader,
Yesterday amidst the pouring rain I detoured into Chez Jenny, the Alsacienne Brasserie near place de la République, to discuss the menu for dinner on June 18th with Franck, their man in charge of special events.
Chez Jenny, now owned by Les Frères Blanc (also owners of Le Procope, La Fermette Marbeuf and Chez Clément), has quite an interesting history. At the colonial exhibition in 1930, Robert Jenny, a native of Strasbourg, had a kiosk where he sold produce from his region — salt-pickled cabbage choucroute, sausages and beer. He came to appreciate Parisian life and noting that the fine Alsatian products attracted the Parisians, he decided to set up business in the city. He settled on number 39 boulevard du Temple which was the hall where the former Victor ball was held and had once been a Russian restaurant in 1906, then a Belgian restaurant in 1914. The “quartier” had the reputation of “Crime Boulevard” in the 18th-century when the plays running at the time in the many theaters in the area mainly drew inspiration from current news items.
This coming June 18th, Thirza Vallois, author of “Around and About Paris,” Volumes I, II and III and “Romantic Paris,” who has credentials a mile long and an ability to see history in layers that never ceases to spellbind her audiences during her brilliant lectures, is likely to tell us other sordid tales of Chez Jenny during the past century over dinner! She has agreed to give us a complete tour of Paris — of all 20 arrondissements in words and pictures — Thirza’s personal account of the past, present and future of Paris.
The event is part of the upcoming Working and Living in France Conference (June 18 – 20, 2004), but guests of conference participants and EVERYONE in Paris is invited to attend. The cost, all inclusive is $75 (about 61 euros).
Now’s the time to reserve your place, as we’ve got to give Franck a proper count very soon, so be sure to email Schuyler Hoffman at [email protected] or click here to reserve automatically using our online secure server.
Hope to see you there, mingling, of course!
A la prochaine…

SPECIAL COCKTAILS, DINNER AND VIRTUAL TOUR OF PARIS PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE WITH INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED AUTHOR AND HISTORIAN THIRZA VALLOIS
Part of the Working and Living in France Conference
Chez Jenny: “An authentic Brasserie with a soul, a style and a history.”
Thirza Vallois, author of “Around and About Paris,” Volumes I, II and III and “Romantic Paris,” has credentials a mile long and an ability to see history in layers that never ceases to spellbind her audiences during her brilliant lectures. She has agreed give the participants of the Working and Living in France Conference a complete tour of Paris — of all 20 arrondissements — Thirza’s personal account of the past, present and future of Paris.
At the colonial exhibition in 1930, Robert Jenny had a kiosk where he sold produce from his region: salt-pickled cabbage choucroute, sausages and beer. Appreciating Parisian life and noting that the fine Alsatian products attracted the Parisians, this native of Strasbourg sought to set up business in the capital. He found just the right place not far from the place de la République, at number 39 boulevard du Temple. This was the hall where the former
Victor ball was held. Did he know that this address had once been that of a Russian restaurant in 1906, then a Belgian restaurant in 1914 ?
The quarter was lively, even though it no longer deserved the reputation of «Crime Boulevard» that it had had in the 18th century, when the plays billed at the many theatres in the area mainly drew inspiration from the items in the news.
Cocktails, Dinner and Virtual Tour of Paris by Thirza Vallois at Chez Jenny is included in the conference price for participants but you and your friends are welcome to join us for $75 each all inclusive.
*Expect the evening to last till at least 11 p.m.

“So what’s the Presidential campaign really about? ‘The economy, stupid’? Or ‘the war, stupid’? Jobs? Or terrorism?
The real issue here is “honesty, stupid!” What cost Aznar his job in Spain was a clumsy attempt to blame Basque separatists and suppress evidence that Al Qaeda was behind a horrendous terrorist attack. That wasn’t a victory for terrorists. It was a defeat for government hypocrisy.
So listen up, candidate Kerry, and President Bush. On the economy and on terrorism, it’s hypocrisy Americans don’t like…” Barber Broadcast on Marketplace on March 22, 2004
