August 16, 2012  Diner en Blanc - Boston, Massachusetts
Dîner en Blanc marks the world’s first viral event, a très chic picnic imported from Paris and now taking hold in outdoor public spaces in 20 cities across 5 continents in 2012. Taking the pop up concept to a refined and mysterious level, these romantic outdoor Epicurean Feasts are organized entirely via social media, attended annually by as many as 10,000 people in cities around the world. For Boston’s first Dîner en Blanc, the guest list will be limited to 1000 people for the as-yet-to-be-disclosed location.      Part mystery, part magic, part flash feast, part je ne sais quoi, the day of the event unfolds the same in every city: the site is revealed at the last-minute to preserve spontaneity and secrecy. Guests are directed to meet in groups of between 20-40 at rallying points where organizers will escort them by foot or subway to the nearby location.  All are asked to dress in elegant white, bring their own epicurean feasts, tables, chairs, glasses, silver and white napery.  The mass of secret picnickers come together for a “chic picnic” in a public space. Over the course of the evening, the diners will celebrate and dine amid live music, dancing, complete with music and festive white balloons. When it is time to leave, guests will pack their crystal, dinnerware and tables, gather all their debris and head into the night, no sign of their elegant revelry left behind.
