Parisian Pranks: Gaby Brasserie Francaise to Delight Guests With Traditional Poisson D'Avril on April Fool's Day

All kidding aside, Gaby Brasserie Française, the charming bistro at the Sofitel New York, will bring April Fool’s Day back to its roots with a fun-filled Poisson d’Avril (April Fish) theme that will delight even its most serious guests. The Midtown Manhattan hotel will celebrate the holiday’s French origins on April 1 with an evening filled with surprise-and-delight treats.

As part of the French tradition, the target of a prank will unknowingly walk around with a paper fish taped to their back. Gaby guests who discover a fish on their back will not become the butt of a joke, but the recipient of a pleasant surprise. One lucky diner at each table will receive a surprise of sorts such as free cocktails, an appetizer to share, or a complimentary bottle of wine. Guests are also encouraged to visit Sofitel New York on Facebook and Google+ to share their favorite April Fool’s pranks using the hashtag #GabyAprilFools.
