Every year Philadelphia puts on the most fabulous event: Diner En Blanc.
If you do not know what Diner En Blac is, it is best described as "A worldwide event, spanning six continents, in which people gather in a public space and set up a temporary, chic dining area. Guests come dressed in white to enjoy quality food and wine." Philadelphia adopted this event from the Parisians that has been happening since 1988!
I was fortunate enough to be able to attend this year, thanks to my friends at Philly PR girl who extended a media invite! The Philly PR girl team put on an amazing pre soiree "media party" for bloggers, photographers, news outlets etc. There is no way to describe Diner En Blanc other than pure MAGIC. It was such an incredible night. Truly.
So the way Diner en Blanc works is that there is a lottery to attend, if you are lucky enough to be chosen! There is TOP SECRET location where it is held that is kept a secret until 1 hour before. Everyone brings their own table, chairs, setup, food, basically EVERYTHING! Everyone comes together to make their table look beautiful, then continues to dine and enjoy the evening. There is live bands and plenty of entertainment.
I had the best time and I hope to be able to attend for years to come! I would highly suggest this event for anyone who has yet to attend! Here are some photos from the night:
