Whether the weather is cold,There's a version to be had for Pétanque, I'm sure, and it involves crêpes. A few minutes' walk away from the pistes in Cadillac Square Park is Good Girls Go To Paris, a new Crêperie owned and operated by Torya Blanchard Howell, a french teacher. The hours are 7AM-7PM Monday-Thursday, 7AM-2AM Friday and Saturday, and Sunday 7 AM-4PM. The crêpe batter is, from what I can tell, a whole wheat affair, and the variety in her menu is quite exciting.
Or whether the weather is hot;
We'll be together
Whatever the weather
Whether we like it or not.
Local Organic Fair Trade Coffee – Always $1There was a bit of a wait today, which would seem to have been because today was the first full day of business for the shop. It's another little bit of French culture slowly seeping back into our fair city, the Paris of the Midwest.

Your author had a crêpe jambon-fromage, and Mark—of Pétanque fame—had a Vera, which he seemed to be enjoying as he hustled back to work.
The crêpes come with high praise from all who were enjoying them, and would make a perfect pre- or post-game snack for the pétanquistes in downtown.
