I will be in Paris for a glorious 4 months and am looking forward to all the gastronomical and enological adventures I'm sure to have. However, as a student there is an obvious budget involved. I will not bore you with a request for cheap eats as this board is inundated with great suggestions (all of which I'm sure to try), but I do wonder the following:
Does this city have the student deals one has grown to know and love in an American college town or major city? Anything along the lines of discounted wines and foods with the presentation of a student ID (be it foreign or local). I have read (and had the pleasure of experiencing) that the happy hour concept has been taking European cities by storm, and while unwinding 17h-19h might be enjoyable, a friendly trivia night at a pub is always pleasant.
Thank you in advance, and I can't wait to delve into a Parisian life...
