This past Monday, August 25, the Tribeca neighborhood in Manhattan was taken over by 5,000 people dressed in all white. Only one event could bring out that amount of people, and that event is Dîner en Blanc. It is no secret that such an occasion would bring out that many people. Our society is obsessed with food and elegant dinners. We watch chef shows all day on television and learn how to make our dining experiences into events that will be memorable and elegant. The one of it's kind pop-up Dîner en Blanc has been at the vanguard of this new trend, which has been gaining momentum as the years go on. It is definitely for anyone who appreciates such a epicurean phenomenon.

This year, Battery Park City was an ocean white, and friends, family, and even strangers made conversation over bread and wine while enjoying the breathtaking views of Lower Manhattan. It was the perfect New York backdrop as the sound of glasses clinked almost N-Synced creating the perfect atmosphere that screamed elegant and flair, which was very suitable for the all-white affair.
