“Diner en Blanc,” a mysterious, all-white dinner party that has been held in secret locations all over the world, is coming to Bangkok in December.

 

Launched nearly three decades ago in Paris, by a Frenchman named François Pasquier who wanted to reconnect with his friends — but couldn’t fit them all in his garden — the first Diner en Blanc was held at a local park. Guests were asked to bring a plus one and dress in white, so they could recognize other members of their circle. The location of the party was only revealed at the last minute, according to Star 2.

 

The concept has lived on, and decades later remains a hit. Diner en Blanc has been held in more than 70 cities around the world, from New York to Sydney to Tokyo to Singapore. According to Forbes, Philadelphia last year had 30,000 people on the waiting list, vying for 5,000 seats.

Quoting from the Coconuts article:

 

Quote

Nothing has been revealed — not the location nor the price. According to the information on its Facebook, participants must bring their own white tables, white tablecloths, white chairs and meals. Most importantly, they have to wear white, and prepare to journey to an unknown location at a moment’s notice.

 

Who in their right mind would pay to go to an event where you need to bring your own table, tablecloth(s) and food?

And be prepared to do this at a drop of hat?

Am I missing something? - Poor reporting by Coconuts or poor translation?

This was promoted early last year, I don't think the local organizers was able to get it going at all. The fact that its "by invitation" only and you had to sign up....I think that was trying to drum up interest and exclusivity but failed badly.
