Dîner en Blanc

I'll have to make a new category for this post: events to which I wish I were invited!  

"This annual event, called the Dîner en Blanc — the “dinner in white” — is like a gustatory Brigadoon, equal parts mystery, anachronism and caprice. Now attended by thousands at some of the best-known Parisian spaces, it began humbly in 1988. That year, François Pasquier, now 67, returned to Paris after a few years abroad and held a dinner party to reconnect with friends. So many wanted to come that he asked them to convene at the Bois de Boulogne and to dress in white, so they could find each other."

You can read the full story here.  If you live in NYC, note that the first dinner to be held in NYC will be on August 25th.... is anyone attending? What a magnificent sight this is / would be to see in person!
