The Latin Quarter of Paris was where he and his friends lived. It was sort of the student part of town. It was kind of a party side of Parisian life. Though Sargent didn't really have time to party, at the age of twenty-two he certainly absorbed the energy of the place and those around him. Friday afternoons must have been times when he and his friends kicked back, relaxed, and enjoyed a beer or two from their studies and work. Maybe not too unlike students today.
