I'm going to bump this thread since I, also, am going to be in Paris in late March/early April for a few days. I've got a place to stay and if my meals aren't covered, I'll probably just cook for myself, although if you know any stellar, not to be missed restaurants, I'm willing to splurge.
I've been to Paris before and done a round of the touristy stuff--I'm a big fan of museums, so I may hit one or two of the smaller ones, but I'm interested more in flea markets, bars, cafes, music venues, contemporary art galleries etc. this time around. So far my plans are pretty minimal (I think a stop at Colette is the only thing on my to-do list...maybe the Picasso museum one morning). Any advice? Areas to check out? Websites to look at?
I'll probably hit the ole' google.fr/yahoo.fr and look up the few French bands I know about...maybe the locations of the venues where they play will give me an idea of which areas to check out? I don't know...any guidance would be appreciated.
