A devoted multiple-times-a-day reader of the blog named Gen emailed me while I was on vacation to tell me about a couple of things. First she mentionned a huge, and I mean HUGE dinner party that took place in a secret location in Montreal on August 19th, called Dîner en blanc or Dinner in White . "At the last minute, a message is sent to thousands of friends and acquaintances who have been patiently waiting to learn the “Dîner en Blanc’s” secret location, and a “flash mob” dressed all in white, and conducting themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette, all meet for a mass “chic picnic” in a public space." HOW COOL IS THAT?!?! Apparently it's been going on in Paris every year for the past 20 years, and now has 15,000 participants. This year was Montreal's second year hosting the event, and 2,200 people attended. Looks like it was a blast! (Photo below by Sean Mollitt)
Gen also mentionned how much she enjoys the blog and that she indirectly talks about it in a song she wrote called The Breaks. !!!!!!!!!! I LOVE the song and the video so I thought I'd embed it here so you all can enjoy it too.
