Other than there wasn't too much issue with beggers. State street Madison, WI is 10x worse

Good point about the bread. You rarely see someone carrying bread that has not already started eating it dry before they even get it home!

Any updates on the Paris beer scene in 2016? Nipping in for work (the flight is just over an hour long) and I was thinking checking if they had some new stuff, or failing that, some decent Belgian beers.

JKaranka, how was your trip?
I'm going to France for the Euros in two weeks so I'm keen on finding some great places to eat/drink in quite a few different cities.

I didn't make an enormous effort but I did meet friends at a decent Belgian place in central Paris. Obviously, expensive as hell. 8e for each bottled beer. Overall, France is massively different from Belgium. I was recently just over the Franco-Belgian border in Tournai (Belgium) and even the smallest place had a decent selection of bottled Belgian beers. Even in the middle of the countryside.
