CHICAGO, Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Local hosts, including The Union des Francais de l'etranger Chicago, a consortium of French citizens living abroad (UFE), have teamed up with the official Diner en Blanc International Inc. to bring the only culinary viral event to Chicago on Friday, August 24, 2012 at 7:00pm. Taking the flash mob concept to a refined level, these outdoor epicurean feasts are organized entirely via word of mouth and social media and attended annually by thousands of people worldwide.
In true DEB style, participants are asked to dress elegantly and entirely in white and bring their own epicurean feasts. A limited number of tables, chairs, and linens will be provided by the secret venue on a first come first serve basis! When supplies run out, they can be rented for a nominal fee. Affordable points of services and event suggestions will be posted on the Diner en Blanc Chicago Pinterest. Chicagoans will also have the option of purchasing gourmet picnic baskets, specially paired with wines, created by world-renowned Chef Tony Mantuano of Spiaggia. One thousand festive attendees are expected at this year's memorable evening in the heart of Chicago, celebrating amid friends and live music.
