Diner en Blanc Paris 2013 - A secret dinner party - Coming to a city near you!

Happy 25th Anniversary!

June 13th marked the 25th anniversary of Diner En Blanc in Paris. Each summer, in the golden glow of the early evening light, thousands of people emerge from their apartments, dressed all in white, and head to a secret location for the picnic of all picnics. 

 About: Diner en Blanc
Launched by François Pasquier and his close friends 25 years ago, Paris’ Dîner en Blanc now brings together over 10,000 people each year in some of the most prestigious locations throughout the French capital.
Here's how it works
At the last minute, the location is given to thousands of friends and acquaintances who have been patiently waiting to learn the “Dîner en Blanc's” secret place. Thousand of people, dressed all in white, and conducting themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette, all meet for a mass “chic picnic” in a public space.

Sounds very exciting doesn't it? Well, if you want to know more about the event you can, click here
Wanna know how YoU can attend an event??

Seems that it's such a secret that you have to know someone in order to attend but there just might be a dinner party in your city. 

Go to Diner en Blanc Facebook page and check them out. I did find one in my city and put myself on the waiting list.  Moments ago, I received an email back explaining my wait status.
