Couples gather for a Diner en Blanc meal at the Trocadero gardens adjacent to the Eiffel Tower in Paris
This is an older article which explains Diner en Blanc. I had never heard of it before. No wonder, I discovered it is supposed to be a SECRET event held each year with thousands attending across the globe. Some secret, huh? It started out as a small gathering .....
The article continues the story. If invited, you must dress in all white, bring your own table, chairs, food, etc, and still pay admission to get in.
The reason I wanted to post about this outrageous event is because I saw some pics in a magazine that I wanted to post here under Style and Fashion, and wanted some background info. to
explain about the event. The pics I will post will be found under Style and Fashion, and my first inclination was to post them to show what people in Dallas really wear to these kind of events.
Some attenders report that they really enjoy this yearly event, but I think I would much prefer to use my dollars some other way. How about you? lol

Protesters wearing yellow vests walk on the Champs-Elysees Avenue with the Arc de Triomphe in the background during a national day of protest by the "yellow vests" movement in Paris, Dec. 8, 2018.
President Emmanuel Macron made an unannounced visit Friday night to a group of anti-riot security officers outside Paris to thank them for their work.
The protests erupted in November over a fuel tax increase, which was part of Macron's plan to combat global warming.
French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe called for new talks Saturday with representatives of the "yellow vest" movement. He vowed the government would address their concerns about rising living costs.
The "yellow vest" movement was named after the safety jackets French motorists are required to keep in their vehicles, which the protesters wear at demonstrations.
The weeks of protests have exposed intense resentment among non-city residents who feel that Macron, a former investment banker, is out of touch with struggling middle-class and blue-collar workers.
The Nazi's ruthless invasion of France in 1940 was perhaps Hitler's greatest achievement and while France was a sworn enemy, Hitler made no secret of his love for the City of Lights and is reported to have said that visiting the city shortly after the invasion, "was the greatest and finest moment of my life."
With that being said, the Fuhrer told Albert Speer (left) shortly after this poignant photo was taken that, "Berlin must be far more beautiful. When we are finished in Berlin, Paris will only be a shadow."
