Le Diner En Blanc – A Secret Picnic with 5,000 of Your Closest New Yorkers

img_6318What do you get when you invite 5,000 New Yorkers to a fancy picnic at a secret location? Le Diner En Blanc, of course. What started as a small idea, has grown into a world wide phenomenon with waiting lists as long as the circumference of the equator!
