August is known as a quiet vacation month in Paris, but there’s no shortage of fun events to pencil in. Take in that exhibition you’ve been meaning to visit, catch an outdoor concert… this month is all about relaxed enjoyment. Hey, you can even indulge in Barack Obama’s favorite burger thanks to this week’s much-anticipated Five Guys opening.

What better way to celebrate this week’s warmer temperatures than with a roving happy hour? Les Heures Heureuses returns tonight and runs through Friday, offering food- and drink-inspired strolls across the city – from Oberkampf to Batignolles – with two-euro happy hour specials at participating restos and bars along the way.

Paris has been dealt an unfortunate hand recently, from nationwide strikes to the Seine flooding its banks. However, the city is still very much alive and kicking off June with some wonderful events.

Until April 9th, the Musée de Minéralogie is hosting an exhibition of British artist Amy Hilton’s work. As the museum name might suggest, Hilton’s subject of choice is very much nature-based and the aesthetic ethereal and soft. There’s an interesting calming effect to viewing her work, one we could all use a bit of. And not surprisingly, I first learned of Amy Hilton via the wonderful Seymour Magazine.

Á l’Etoile d’Or was always one of my go-to stops in Paris, both for satiating my own sweet tooth and stocking up on little presents to bring back to the States; a sachet of Henri Le Roux caramels au beurre salé or a bar of Bernachon chocolate prove the perfect gifts. The store experienced a destructive gas explosion last year and devotees of Mme Acabo’s confections were rightfully disheartened. But the beloved shop reopened this week, and we will definitely be paying it a visit soon.
