When Ernest and Hadley first arrived in Paris, they had Christmas dinner at The Cafe de la Paix, a cafe on the Right Bank. When the bill came, they realized that they didn't have enough money to pay the bill. While Hadley waited, Ernest ran the several miles back to their apartment to get the money. Hemingway mentions the cafe in The Sun also Rises and My Old Man.
Happy Holidays, everyone, from Hemingway's Paris.
