Stopover for dessert in Paris | Just the glass will do

Early 2010, in Europe’s freezing winter, the sister and I were going to spend exactly 2 nights in the city of Paris. While we did spend most of the first day sleeping, we decided to make as much of the night as we could to cover up. We booked ourselves onto the night ferry across River Seine, a walk around the Eiffel tower at night and a show at the Moulin Rouge. But we were in Paris and I had to get a souvenir glass from Hard Rock Cafe. We had rented a private cab and with a lot of hope, we asked the driver if it would be possible. He agreed but on the condition that we would spend no more than 5 minutes at the shop. We were sold. We literally walked in and picked up the first glass we saw. To our surprise, it was a dessert glass. Unique to the Paris store, it made perfect sense why it would be so. We were outta there in no time but it’s so much fun recounting the story. 🙂
