Montreal’s White Dinner 2009, picnicking in style!

Posted on August 14th, 2009 by .

This just in, folks: There are 150 tickets left to the swankiest picnic dinner you’ll ever see.

After 20 years of success in Paris, the concept of a classy outdoor meal is coming to Montreal on Thursday, August 20. And just what is it all about? Imagine 1,000 people all dressed in their most elegant white duds and breaking bread together by candlelight. To add to the mystique, the location is kept secret until the last minute. Magique!

It’s up to you to bring your own food and drink, but I recommend doing it the French way with baguette bread, brie, foie gras and champagne. I think this is a great way for tourists to meet locals, test out their French (or just French food), and have a great time.

Tickets are available online only at: diner en blanc (The website is mostly in French, but you’ll find the form to fill out at the bottom of the page.)

Insider tip: Pack some Tide to Go.
