The story goes, told by the writer himself, that Hemingway would go to the park to catch a pigeon, wring its neck, and hide it in the baby stroller so he could smuggle it home for dinner. Scott Fitzgerald and others would drink together at the hotel bar.
The hotel even makes an appearance in The Sun Also Rises. Hemingway somehow made his way to France to report on the Allied soldiers. He actually managed to get aboard one of the landing craft during the D-Day invasion, but was not allowed to go on shore. Anyway, Hemingway claimed that he was one of the first to arrive in Paris to liberate the city. He wasn't, but he did "liberate" the Ritz Hotel Bar with a motley troupe, ordering up champagne and camping out in the hotel.
