Ah, the French café terraces, the bakeries! With its French-influenced Asian-American community and excellent coffee shops, Austin has quite good approximations of those French experiences, and it’s also possible to enjoy French culture in many different ways in the Capital of Texas. So let’s enjoy that taste of France in Austin and meetup at the beginning of each month, on Friday afternoon!
On its first anniversary, French In Austin launches the French Fridays, a monthly gathering around something French: some music, a croissant, an artifact…
Because most places are crowded on Friday evenings, and French In Austin doesn’t want to be limited by opening hours (at museums for example), this monthly meeting takes place in the afternoon, and respects the French habit of taking long weekends on a regular basis, thanks to the “RTT” paid vacations (days off given to salaried employees in order to reduce their average weekly workload, that musn’t be much more than 35h a week by French law).
Why not take advantage of a Friday off or a flexible schedule to immerse yourself in French culture next third Friday of the month?
