Steve at Hungry Onion was kind enough to start this board for people who want to discuss Paris. I hope it works, because to be honest, I would truly miss the discussions and expertise of people from Chowhound’s Paris board. Even when I didn’t post there, I was truly engaged with your wealth of knowledge and opinions.
Thank you Trish for thinking that I might have had anything to do with setting up this section of HO (unless you were referring to another “Steve”… then, “never mind”). I would guess that naf got the message thru and then volunteered to moderate it. For that, I’m thankful.
As for Phoenikia’s question about meal “meet-ups”, I’m aware of some of the long timers getting together regularly when they’re in Paris at the same time. I’ve had meals with JTalbott, ptipois, mangeur, onzieme and a couple of others by reaching out. I plan to continue to contact folks whenever we travel, as I’ve always gotten a great reception when I do. So… see you in Paris?
Thanks for the hospitality HO!! I am really looking towards the Paris board here and I am sure there is lots of great info. Any idea on what happens to the old CH Paris board- I would still like to access the info there.
I just joined (moving from CH) where I was a frequent consumer of incredibly valuable info but not a contributor (though I always gave a shoutout to CH in my TripAdvisor TRs). I’m using the same user name here but don’t see any of the familiar names of the CH experts. I wonder if they haven’t joined yet or are using different names.
I assume you mean specifically here on the newly formed France/Paris board? Well, we’re all trying to get Parnassien to come here but, other than him, who are you looking for? Some of the regular Paris posters dropped out of CH well before the announcement and others are here. Let us know & maybe we can reach out to him/her. And, welcome.
Parnassien has migrated here as ParnParis because of sign-up glitches using hotmail. Not a good start at 1:30am here and all I really want is to go to bed. Is Hungry Onion tech-savvy enough to handle the influx ?
