FRENCH FRIDAY #50: Boîte de nuit


LA TASSE DE CAFE | FASHIONABLE FRENCH VOCABULARY 
2 girls drinking coffee, spring fashion, black and white photography

Boîte de nuit
French Pronounciation:|bwaht duh nwee|
Definition :  night club

Even though I'm not exactly a Spring chicken, every now and then, it's nice to go out dancing! Am I right, or am I right? But just because we're getting older doesn't mean we have to use old-fashioned words- in English or in French! So, next time you're in Paris, you're not going to a discothèque! You're going to a boîte de nuit or simply a boîte.

I'm positive that Amy Lynn and Simone know what I'm talking about...

Amy Lynn:    OMG, Simone, I'm so in the mood to go dancing! Shall we go to a discothèque?

Simone: OMG, are you, like, 50? No one says that anymore! I'll only go out with you if you never say that word ever again. 

Amy Lynn:    Sorry Simone! I was just trying to impress you! How do you say it then?

Simone: It's called a boîte de nuit. Get it straight, and Allons-y!

I guess Simone got over it because Allons-y [ah-lohn zee] means "Let's go!" So, what about you guys? Do you still like to go to les boîtes every now and then? Or do you mainly stick to bars or perhaps even have dance parties in your living room? 

À la semaine prochaine!

Jenée Here:
Mlle Love's lesson came right in time!!! We are headed to Atlantic City this weekend (AC for those in the know!) Going to check out the Jersey shore --- don't worry I'll take pictures. Make sure you are following me on instagram @jeneesaisquoidotcom. Perhaps I'll even put on a tight dress over this bump and check out a Boîte ???

Come back next week for the full report.

The Origin of "La Tasse de Café", French for "the cup of coffee"
is a morning radio show out of Ville Platte, Louisiana on KVPI-FM
My dad listens to it regularly to keep up with his Cajun French as he now doesn't have much opportunity to speak it in Louisiana where the language is disappearing. 
Since I'm from Cajun land in Louisiana - with a serious interest in fashion - and Mademoiselle Love, a Louisiana girl too, - is in love with everything French and everything coffee - it was only fitting we pay tribute to our roots and our new found loves with a weekly Fashion French lesson.
.....................................................................................
Tune in to KVPI every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning at 8:45AM (NY time) for your Cajun  French lesson and come back to the blog every Friday for more Fashionable French lessons.
