Le Dîner à San Diego: San Diego’s First All White Flash Mob Picnic
DISCLAIMER: This event is not related to and is not an official Diner en Blanc® event.
On the evening of Friday, May 25th, 2012, people from all over San Diego dressed in white will celebrate the pleasure of dining elegantly and grandly with old friends and new friends in one of San Diego’s beautiful outdoor spaces. These lucky guests will be the first to attend the inaugural Le Dîner à San Diego, a spontaneous flash elegant “pop-up picnic” dinner feast that has been steeped in mystery until this magical night – when the location will be revealed and guests will be finally invited to eat, drink, and be merry!
Le Dîner à San Diego is inspired by French phenomenon that began in Paris in 1988, when friends gathered at the Bois de Boulogne for a dinner party and dressed in white so they could see each other in the dark. Now, every year, thousands of people gather in Paris and in several other European and Canadian cities to recreate this event. In 2011 gracious and elegant “pop-up” dinner parties were held in Chicago, New York and and in San Francisco with Le Dîner à San Francisco, bringing a unique American approach to this fine tradition.
On March 25, 2012 at 9:00am, participants will be able to register to host a table at Le Dîner à San Diego and invite up to three additional friends or family members. As hosts, Heads of Tables are responsible for organizing all elements of their individual tables. Registration will be capped at one thousand Heads of Tables.
Le Dîner à San Diego has maintained many of the traditions of the original event. Guests are requested to dress in all white, bring chairs for their guests (tables will be provided) and whatever picnic accoutrement they desire. While guests are unified in the spirit of the event, the way they choose to celebrate will be of their own design. It is the hope of the Le Dîner team that the evening will be one of creativity, spontaneity, and magic.
There is no “right way” to participate in Le Dîner à San Diego; there is only a time, a place, and a group of your best friends with which to share the unparalleled experience of this unique event.
