Ever dreamed you were a part of a secret society? Want to dress up in coordinating attire with your comrades while you enjoy a fancy meal? If you’ve answered yes to either of these questions, then you should sign up for Le Diner en Blanc. A tradition that began 25 years ago in Paris, Le Diner is an annual “chic picnic” exclusive to registrants that occurs in big cities all over the world.
Everyone is required to wear white and pack their favorite fancy cuisine for dinner. At the very last minute, the secret location is revealed. It is always conducted at place that is private, quiet, and serene, with no other distractions.
Once you’ve signed up, the most important part is finding something elegant to wear. The US*U.S. store (located on 323 Arch St.) has a variety of classy options suitable for this event. The best thing is, almost everything is on sale.
Just pick what, or shall I say white you want to wear.
