Diner En Blanc | Coverage by The Pulse

Dîner en Blanc (http://dinerenblanc.info/), the original secret pop-up picnic imported from Paris, where it launched 24 years ago, debuted in San Diego Thursday, October 18, 2012. The Pulse SD was invited to take you inside this amazing private affair!

San Diego was excited to be a part the international network of dinners taking place in over 20 cities across 5 continents in 2012.

Guests dressed entirely in white, brought an epicurean basket of food, tables and chairs to a rallying location and were then shuttled to the event site, leaving the location a complete mystery until their arrival. The location was the beautiful Harbor Island Park with breathtaking views of the San Diego Skyline! Cindy from the Pulse interviewed the amazing Meredith Bell, director of business development for H Events, who put this fabulous event together. We also talk to uber mixologist from The US Grant Hotel Jeff Josehans who put together the signature cocktails for the VIP guests.

In order to purchase tickets and participate, one must be invited by a guest that has attended a previous DEB event or sign up on the official website’s waiting list, http://sandiego.dinerenblanc.info/waiting.php.

In anticipation for the upcoming Dîner en Blanc events, Bravo TV’s Top Chef Masters did a challenge dedicated to what they call “one of the world’s greatest underground dining events.” http://www.bravotv.com/top-chef-masters/season-4/episode-8-foodie-flash-mob.
