After attending Brown University and spending two years in New York, Tory bought a one-way ticket to Paris to pursue her dream of becoming a writer (and of drinking wine at lunch). During her time in the City of Light, she chronicled the euphoric highs and the laughable lows of ex-pat life on her blog, A Moveable Beast. Though she's now based in New York, she travels frequently to Montreal and Brazil, and she'll use just about any excuse to jet to Paris ("I ran out of fleur de sel"). A regular contributor to Hip Paris, Tory also writes for New York Magazine, Time Out New York, and she is a co-author of's Guide To Life After College. View Tory Hoen's Website

Wow, looks like I’m a little *too* into that apero – I’m all open mouth and disappearing arms 🙂
That was a great time, by the way.

I like the idea of the apero being a pause rather than an emergency measure. Yes, nice to sit and savor a drink rather than feeling like you really *need* one!

I’m in one of those photos!

˙Hops that’s ok my dear! Aie. I did not say who you all were!

My favourite hour of the day…..xv

I just had great Aperos at the Cheri Bibi on rue Andre Del Sartre in Montmartre. Lots of fun! Erica
