"Good weather in Paris always brings out an army of picnickers carrying folding chairs and baskets. But when Parisians-in-the-know descended on the Louvre courtyard last week, they were actually participating in an annual dining event that's some 20 years old. Known as "Le Dîner en Blanc, the city's clandestine dinner party attracts a crowd dressed entirely in white that comes together at an undisclosed location through a word-of-mouth campaign."
After pitstops in Paris, Lyon, Amsterdam, Munich, Zurich, Berlin, Quebec City and Montreal New York City will now be having it's first Dinner in White on August 25, 2011. I've got my fingers crossed that my spot on the waiting list will be called. Check it out here and sign up!
