Blankety Blancs


I was fortunate enough to experience the very first Diner en Blanc event in Sydney on the weekend, a Parisian ‘flash mob dining experience’ which has been going for 20+ years and is now enjoyed in cities all over the world. I braved tight white clothing, a scavenger hunt to collect every blanc de blanc item I needed, and…The Rules.

You gotta love the ballsiness of an organiser that threatens to ban you from all events globally if you dare not show up: 
"Those having transgressed the rules or desisted at the last moment, deterred by ominous clouds, will not be re-invited to the following editions. Their name and email will be put on a black list, prohibiting them from registering for future editions." ...Put the fear of God into guests like that and even Hurricane Sandy couldn’t have kept Dan & I away.
