Yes, there's a Beaujolais Nouveau event in my area every year! It is an Alliance Francaise event and I went to it with a friend who invited me to go with her. We took some French classes together and thought we should try to practice our skills, which aren't immense but we know a few useful words. I was a bit embarrassed and decided that some new classes would again be helpful! They are so much fun! There are also meetings where you can practice with others. And friends to write to online! I really enjoy it anytime I get a chance. C'est tres grand!
