- pick up some amazing breads and treats from La Baguette, owned and operated by a french couple (located on Mineral Point Rd. near West Towne Mall), their shelves offer the best taste of France without the cost of an airline ticket;
- turn on my CD player (no I don't have it on MP3) and listen to the London recording of the musical, Les Miserables;
- read a few pages from Victor Hugo's epic novel, Les Miserables; and
- open a bottle for French wine for dinner (Barriques has a great $10 and under wall).
Are you a frugal Francophile? If so, having any suggestions to add to this list? Bonne Bastille!
