With Claire and Mika (center) at the SOMO Bar (Rue Montmartre, 2nd) to celebrate another February birthday. Doesn't look a day over 29, does she?! SOMO is owned by the same folks as the Lizard Lounge over in the Marais (Rue du Bourg-Tibourg), so there's a similar crowd of 25-35ish "trying to look casually snazzy" Parisians and Anglophones. Up in the oddly tiled tower is a DJ we can barely see, but the music is good so who cares? Being a holiday in Paris, most of the town is off skiing, so we could actually find seats at the bar and watch the girls make eyes at the cute Danish bartender (who was pounced on immediately by Claire's tall, blonde Danish friend...making the most of an unfair advantage!)

A blurry glimpse of Go-Go Paris Editor Kate van den Boogert at the magazine's anniversary party at Andy Wahloo Bar (69 rue des Gravilliers, 3rd), February 1st.
A typically packed and smokey night at the Andy Wahloo...
