le "Picnic du Jour" Paris


A Tradition in Paris since 2009/Une Tradition à Paris depuis 2009 ~ This is our 5th Year!
Come to the "Picnic du Jour", a daily 'non-touristic' picnic for everyone, in a different lovely location around Paris. Arrive at any time you want to... Meet other CSers in Paris, make plans, have fun!

The picnic is posted each day to this group and to the Paris events list.

Annual Special Event...
On Sunday, July 28 we celebrated the 4th Annual Picnic du Jour Anniversary Picnic

This CS Group...
Join our sub-group if you are a Parisian or CS visitors to Paris who wants to conveniently receive notices each day about the "Picnic du Jour" while not receiving all of the posts of the Paris group, reducing the number of posts that you may not be interested in receiving.

To receive the "Picnic du Jour" announcements please go to "My Group Settings", and set your messaging preference to "Instant Updates". (If you set it to "Daily", you might receive the announcement after the picnic is over, and certainly so if your setting is "Weekly".)

History of the Picnic du Jour...
In the days just after Paris Rendez-Vous 2009, Rodney Recor (http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/RodneyRecor) created the "Picnic du Jour" as a daily activity during the summer months. The following summer, on 13 June 2010, in response to the PdJ's remarkable popularity, the 'Picnic du Jour' sub-group was first organized.

When Rodney is not in Paris, co-moderator Thoutankarton (Eric) and other group members help to co-organize the Picnic on an occassional basis, weather permitting. If you want to be a co-Moderator during summer 2013 and beyond, please feel free to ask!

The "Picnic du Jour" is for anyone who would like to enjoy it, and to arrive at any time they want to. Meet other CSers in Paris, make plans, share great conversations, and have fun! If YOU want to organize the "Picnic du Jour" when it is not already planned, go right ahead and enjoy yourself!
The "Picnic du Jour" is usually scheduled to begin in the mid-afternoon on the weekdays. Working Parisiens can join us later after work. On Saturday and Sunday, the picnic usually begins at 1pm. Often, on the days that someone else has already posted a picnic, this post will support it and announce it here as that day's Picnic du Jour.
