Information On The Event & The Date; The Location Is TBD Until The Last Minute
If you’re wondering how to attend, you need to register on-line in advance. And that may only put you a waiting list, for there is a three-step process as outlined here:
• Phase 1 is for members who attended the previous year
• Phase 2 is for new members who are referred by Phase 1 attendees
• Phase 3 is for people who have signed up on the waiting list
There is a registration fee. Here is the registration link: losangeles.dinerenblanc.com/register
This is a highly-anticipated, highly sought-after affair. And for good reason: it’s awesome.
Le Diner en Blanc is a unique event started in Paris as a giant dinner party in a public space. It has spread to other major cities, some attracting as many as 20,0000 people. The one in Los Angeles will have approximately 2,000.
The rules are simple and the execution is up to the individual or the groups that go to it.
You have to bring everything you need for the night. That includes your table, which you set up and break down yourself, plus your own food, non-alcoholic drinks (wine and champagne cam be purchased in advance) silverware, napkins – the works. Some people even bring elaborate table decorations.
You can purchase food baskets in advance and wine and champagne from the event sponsors.
Everything you take to the event, you must also take home. Organizers even cover up the trash cans. And, of course, you must be dressed in all white attire.
Once the event gets rolling, there’s a DJ and impromptu dancing.
The exact location and time is not revealed until approximately two hours before the start of the event. About all you know is it’s in Los Angeles and it will be in the evening in a public location.
