Pétanque at the Palais Royal


Earlier I posted some photos of some gentlemen at Jardins du Luxembourg that showed me the ropes of pétanque here.  I heard from a reader that has the Pétanque America blog.  Check  out his blog to find more information on the game.  The evening we spent at the Palais Royal with our Birmingham friends, I walked up on this cute group playing as the sun set.  They were equally as spirited but added a new "accessory" in the other hand! 

Apparently the Heineken is a new pétanque accessory for the younger set.
