France | Next up on UNESCO’s intangible heritage list? Paris bistros, perhaps—as symbol of defiance

PARIS — In the days after terrorists massacred scores of people lounging in Paris cafes on an unseasonably warm November night in 2015, Parisians defiantly returned to their neighborhood bistros in droves to show that they would not be broken.


The hashtags #jesuisenterrace, meaning “I am outside,” and #tousaubistrot, or “Everyone to the bistro,” exploded on social media, as people gathered to lift a glass of wine under the heat lamps as a way to demonstrate that their way of life would continue.
