What the heck is Diner en Blanc?

Meaning "Dinner in White," Diner en Blanc is a secret get together, limited to 1000 people this year, in certain cities across the world.  Think of it as a flash mob dinner in which you need an invitation and you must wear white.

According to the website,

"Born 24 years ago in Paris... Launched with just a handful of friends by Francois Pasquier over 20 years ago, Paris' Diner en Blanc now assembles nearly 15,000 people each year."

And according to Atlantic City Weekly, it's coming to Atlantic City!  No date has been confirmed yet, but you can register to be on the guest list.

The other cities that have confirmed for Diner en Blanc in 2012 are -
