May 1st, 2008 - Labour Day AND Ascension Day in Paris - what will be open?

My husband and I are traveling to Paris for our first time, and while doing my research, I realize we will be there on May 1st, which this year happens to be Labour Day and Ascension Day.

Will many restaurants be closed? I know the museums will be. To anyone that is local to the area (Paris), or has traveled there during this time in previous years, what should we expect? And (to the best of your knowledge) what will/ will not be open?

Also, slightly off topic, but how would you spend your day? We only have four days in Paris, and we really want to make the most of it.

Thanks in advance for your help!
