Can't get enough of Diner en Blanc?

There's another opportunity to participate Aug. 29 in Washington, D.C., at the second annual Le Diner en Blanc, a secret dinner party that encourages participants to dress in white. (A similar themed event was held at Baltimore's Center Plaza over the weekend.)

More than 2,500 people are expected to attend this year's event, which will be held at an undisclosed location. (Tickets are $37 per person plus an $8 membership fee.) Last year, 1,500 people attended the event at The Yards Park at the Capitol Riverfront.

Here's how it works: Guests from previous years are automatically invited, and registered members from the previous year may invite a new member. New guests can get on a waiting list via the website: washington.dinerenblanc.info/register.

Once guests are confirmed, participation becomes mandatory, regardless of weather conditions. (The event will take place rain or shine.)

Guests will meet at an assigned departure location and are then escorted by Diner en Blanc volunteers to the secret location.

Guests are required to bring a table; two white chairs; a white tablecloth; a picnic basket of fine food, proper stemware and white dinnerware; and champagne or wine.

Beer and hard liquor are prohibited. Guests are required to leave with all their belongings, leftovers and litter. A catered picnic basket option is available for an additional cost and must be reserved online through the Dîner en Blanc website during the initial ticket registration.
