    From acclaimed writer-director Rachid Bouchareb (Indigenes) comes this epic story--a 2011 Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film--of three brothers who fight for Algeria’s independence from France following World War II. After losing their family home in Algeria, three brothers and their mother are scattered across the globe. Messaoud joins the French army fighting in Indochina, Abdelkader becomes a leader of the Algerian independence movement in France, and Saïd moves to Paris to make his fortune in the shady clubs and boxing halls of Pigalle. Gradually, their interconnecting destinies reunite them in the French capital, where freedom is a battle to be fought and won. Co-presented by 3rd I NY

    I re-checked the place yesterday, and I'm still stunned by all these skyline views from the 26th floor, in all the directions. In addition, thisrooftop bar/restaurant is the rated #1 romantic place in New York City, where dozen of men have proposed.... Not bad for a Pre-Valentine's Day party :-)

    We have a large area inside, with a perfect layout for our meets, our greets and our conversations. Jonathan, the manager, sounds pretty excited by the idea of hosting us. Specials will be announced this weekend.

Thursday
  • Dinner and French Conversation (Parlez-Vous Francais?)

  • Oct 20, 2011 from 3:00pm to 7:30pm
  • Location: Veranda NYC
  • Description:

    Bonjour tout le monde,

    Last Dinner at Veranda was amazing that's why we are repeating the experience  next Thursday at 7:00PM for dinner and drinks Hookah and more.

    We are expecting many Francophones and Francophiles that evening. Let's converse in French over some great food.

    If you prefer to skip the dinner feel free to join us for drinks. The main goal is getting together and speaking French.

     

    Veranda:

    Restaurant by day and lounge by night. Veranda is in a world of its own. Exposed brick walls, outdoor tables, and a glass facade greet you on a modern Mediterranean dining experience.

    The lounge, with its candle lit atmosphere, hookahs on order, and international beats is the perfect place for an intimate drink.

    For those feeling more ambitious, Veranda spins contemporary house, hip-hop and rock all night long in its main dining room. Surrounded by dim, sexy lighting and packed with a European crowd the party looks straight out of the Mediterranean.
