Diner en Blanc – Vancouver 2012
Vancouver just experienced the most magical SECRET picnic…ever. During Diner en Blanc 2012 – the Vancouver edition that was the most common word: magical. People were saying they’d not seen that much magic in the city since our Olympics.
1,200 diners dressed in white, brought in their own table, crystal and dining (nothing disposable) – and either their own picnic or pre-ordered from Top Chef Canada winner, Dale MacKay.
Then all the diners were invited to meet at five different spots around the Vancouver downtown core. They had no idea where the dining spot was even as their group leader walked them in closer to the secret location….
Ta Da! The location this year was the Jack Poole Plaza at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Home of the 2012 Olympic torch.
The pictures say a thousand words…after you’ve stopped saying omg I wish I was there, then signup to be on the waiting list for 2013. Any guesses on next year’s location?
