What started off as a get-together of French expats in New York over the last few years grew to become French Tuesdays, a full-fledged company with CEO and all. And what is it, exactly? Parties frequented mostly by French expats, where the champagne flows freely. Simple as that, except that they close it off to non-members.
French Tuesdays have expanded to Miami, L.A., San Francisco and - go figure! - even Paris. And now the next city to welcome the Tuesday night party is São Paulo. The DJ, appropriately enough, is called Jean Michel and will fly in from NY especially for the event. Don't just show up, though: the party has its own set of rules. Here's the fine print:
"French Tuesdays Members only can register on the guest list and get free access to the event with their guests.
Registration to our events has to be done online, using a personal login and password.
Photo ID is required at the door and the name on the guest list has to match the one on the ID to be granted free access.
Complimentary access is granted only when registered on the guest list before the closure time. Members who are not registered on the guest list but want to attend the event will have to pay a cover fee at the door.
Members can register with guests to all the events taking place in their city. The number of guests varies with the capacity of the venue and can be restricted at our discretion.
Web Members can register to 2 events per year and cannot invite guests. In case of no-show, registration rights cannot be recredited. The total number of web members is limited to 20 per event. First come, first served!
If you are not a member, you can attend our events if invited by a Member. Ask them to add your full name to their guest list. Members only can register names on the guest list.
Access of non-registered guests may be granted against a cover fee.
According to the attendance number, we will do our best to accommodate non-members, but access can never be guaranteed. We will always give priority to the members when a capacity problem arises."
