Weekend Links: Week 22

Weekend Links Week 22 is here along with the sun in Paris. I’m taking a French class on Saturday but am otherwise spending the weekend outdoors. Some of my favorite articles from this week include an article about a 200-year-old (still drinkable) bottle of wine that was meant for Napoleon, a recipe for a French twist on a Caesar salad, a list of the best terraces hidden in Parisian courtyards and more. I hope you enjoy!
