Toulouse. An ice rink will be installed on the Place du Capitole
The controversies will not have got the better of the ice rink. This Friday, the town hall of Toulouse announced that it will be well installed on the Place du Capitole during the Christmas Market, which will open on November 25. “To deal with the energy crisis, we announced in October a plan of 25 measures whose effectiveness, in addition to the efforts made since 2014 to reduce our energy consumption, allows us to preserve the warm atmosphere of the Christmas holidays. end of the year in Toulouse. The Christmas Market on the Place du Capitole will therefore once again have its own ice rink. This is a perfectly assumed choice, which we made after having thought in detail about both its impact environment and the service provider’s commitments. But which also takes into account the enthusiasm of Toulouse residents, of all ages, who are more and more numerous each year to come and try their hand at ice skating. If, like me, you spend Place du Capitole regularly, especially during this period, you know how comforting their bursts of joy are,” said Jean-Luc Moudenc, the mayor of Toulouse.
MaNo Wine Consult offered an invitation to travel on Thursday evening on the tarmac of the Aeroscopia museum in Blagnac. The Toulouse company specializing in the export of French wines offered a hundred privileges to board the Airbus A380 test for a tasting of great wines. Each paid 200 euros, the price of the ticket to test, in moderation, 24 renowned wines and six spirits. At this price, needless to say, the jumbo jet did not take to the air. As Mathias Noguera, the CEO of MaNo Wine, who organizes two events of this type this year, explains, “the idea is to do offbeat things. We did tastings in a car dealership, at the Hippodrome de la Cépière, but on a plane, it’s a first. It’s also an opportunity for us to mark the launch of our MaNo Wine Club application, which makes it easy to order bottles from among the 400 that we offer for sale.”
