Diner en Blanc

I am obviously late to the party, 24 years to be exact.  Apparently in 1988, one hundred friends met at a flash picnic in Paris.  They wore all white so they could find each other easily.  Fast forward to today and the guest list is in the thousands and The White Dinner is held in cities all over the world.  People sign up online to be put on the wait list.  They don't know the location of the dinner until the day of.  They bring in all their own food, wine, tables, linens and chairs.  They have to leave the site just as they found it.  People have to be as elegant as possible.  They wear gowns and serve 5 course dinners with candelabras.  Guess what? there is going to be a dinner in Chicago on August 24!!  Go here for the link to sign up.  I think this is so amazing.
