A quote from the site:
"so put on your masks, colourful lively cloths and beads and come join us for a PUA-adventure fun!
You are welcome to come for free and just order drinks and food at the bar 'a-la-carte'."

I found a magazine in the library and it had some amazing art/design/illustration places to visit. I'm not sure about location but I noted a few of them which stood out!

Exhibition/Shop -

Also I'd like to visit all the typical tourist spots (eiffel tour...etc) as well as alternative/arty tourist spots for example the slopes of Montmartre...

Really want to experience french cuisine, pastry shops and bars and like the idea of going to a french concert! Would like to go shopping!

My hope is to experience Paris in every way I can. Through the general observation culture, cuisine and lifestyle. I'd like to soak up inspiration from Paris art and design spots. And I'll be snapping away and picking up souvenirs where i can!
