I'll be in Paris for a few days after the fest. Recommend stuff to do other than buying hookers and doing hard drugs.

Any good vegan or vegetarian restaurants there?

It's a cliche but hold onto your valuables. Particularly around the Eiffel Tower and the parks. The trick used to be they'd rush you while you were taking photos.

Paris was in my experience not good for vegetarian food, but I haven't been for a few years so hopefully things have got better.

The catacombs. Lots of skulls and bones piled up in different shapes and motifs.

Grab a bottle of wine, get a fresh baguette and some form of cheese, and picnic in the park around the Eiffel tower for a bit. Do the same with Montmartre, a hill/church overlooking the city. There might be dudes just selling beers for a euro or two. Simple things but honestly this were the highlights for when I was there. Beautiful city.

As far as vegetarian/vegan, Paris was one of the worst i've been too, though I didn't do enough preparation with the language/researching before I got there, so if you don't find places ahead of time or have an international data plan/wifi or some sort, you'll eat bread & cheese as your vegetarian diet.

there is a metal bar, le black dog, though not sure how metal or 'power metal' it gets, it looked cool from the outside when I spotted it on my last day in Paris. Also, I found a couple of cool record stores at the largest flea market, I forget the name of it, but they had like mint Tyrant vinyl records and shit...

I think he is referring to Puces de Clignancourt / Saint-Ouen. At least it is the only big flea market I know in the Paris area. There are some vinyl sellers yes. Not too expansive, but not cheap (they know what they sell hehe). Haven't been there since a long time. This is a bad looking place, in the north of Paris (aka Harlem of Paris Very Happy)

Pere Lachaise Cemetery is an amazing place to visit.

Musée de l'Armée has some great sections.

Don't remember the name, but near Musee de Cluny (in rue de Cluny) there was a restaurant where you can choose the ingredients with your pasta.

Edit: found it

I think Paris is great for just wandering around, at least that's what I like to do most. The center is a really annoying place, so many tourists. It's interesting for the museums, and you should go once to check out all the historical buildings, but that's it. The only good place there is Saint Michel and the Luxembourg. My favorite places in Paris are in the east, 13th and 20th districts have some really cool places. You should go to the Père Lachaise cemetary and the Buttes-Chaumont park (best park in Paris).
As for record stores, here are the ones I usually go to : Gibert Joseph, Parallèles, MusicFearSatan, Le silence de la rue, Crocodisc. If you don't mind paying big bucks for rare vinyls you should also check out Monster melodies.
There are also several forests near Paris in Île-de-France, like Senart or Rambouillet.
