L’apéro: it’s not a happy hour, not a dinner, not a barbecue. But what is it?
L’apéro is the part of the day when the French stop doing what they’re doing and convene for a drink over small plates. It’s around the time of day when shadows get longer and the sun starts to set. It’s after work, it’s before dinner, before a party, before a dinner party — sometimes it is the dinner party (un apéro dinatoire). It’s always with company; no one is alone at a bar nursing a Pilsner for l’apéro. Company is what makes it a familial ritual: the day winds down and there’s nothing left to do but have good food and drinks with friends.
