Did you see the New York Times article on the Diner en Blanc in Paris? Thousands of people converged in the plaza of Notre Dame and the courtyard of the Louvre, all dressed in white, to dine together. Everyone brings their own tables and picnic dinners. The most astonishing thing is that it is like a flash mob, suddenly everyone arrives and three hours later, the spaces are empty and left in immaculate condition. Now it looks like New York will have it's own turn at Diner en Blanc on August 25th at an undisclosed location in Manhattan. I've already signed up on their online waiting list!
