Yesterday the Apero d'Amour III went down at the Lomography Gallery Store Paris. Under the working title "Bad Poetry and Calimocho", participants were invited to recite teenage style poetry dedicated to a Summer Love.

Yesterday the Apero d’Amour III went down at the Lomography Gallery Store Paris. Under the working title “Bad Poetry and Calimocho”, participants were invited to recite teenage style poetry dedicated to a Summer Love. The goal of the exercise was to get in shape for this summer’s romantic adventures and the yearnings thereafter.
About 60 people showed up to party the pain away. The Ambassador had prepared three poems giving an intimate look into his adolescent years, involving involuntary concentrations of blood in the lower body on the beach and so on. You get the idea. He had to learn it the hard way.
Later other fellow lomographers took the megaphone and told their misfortunes in the field of love, to the utmost amusement of the audience.
The Lomography Gallery Store was proud to welcome the incredible trombonist Dick Turner as musical guest star. With his fabulously twisted lyrics and minimalist arrangements he is one of the true hidden stars of the Parisian musical underground. His hits include evergreens such as “Baking Cakes” and the immortal “Let’s Have An Orgy”, amongst others.
The drink of choice was lovely “Calimocho”. Well known to contemporaries that have vacationed in Spain, this aestival refreshment consists of red wine upgraded with delicious Cola. Miam, miam! (Well most guest stayed with Mousseux.)
The crowd went on mingling and listening to exotic summer hits and power ballads. The aperitif ended just before midnight, right in time to get to dinner. And that’s the way it is supposed to be!
