Flash mob-style dinner en blanc events in the Twin Cities
Dinner en blanc, the most elegant picnic
Someday the rain will end. The ground will dry and the sun will rise. At some point summer will come and we'll be so eager to bask in its brief glory that we'll need to take every meal outside. On the horizon there are not one, but two enchanting dinners held outside in Minneapolis where diners will dress entirely in white.
Inspired by Dinner en Blanc in France, an organized outdoor picnic that operates like a flash mob. The groups will show up at a set location that they won't know until an hour beforehand where they will be headed. They set up tables, set out elegant food (no potato salad or PB & J's here), silverware and toast the season. Just as quickly as they arrive, the group dissipates, leaving no trace.
