The Best Thing That Happened This Week
We’re not saying we think Dîner en Blanc is pretentious. (How would we dare when the local waitlist is 30,000 names long?) And we’re not gonna say we think $39 per ticket is a bit steep when the grand affair is BYO meal. We’re surely not about to snigger at an event at which the city’s finest shake out their linen napkins in unison, wave sparklers, dance beneath the stars, and then take their leave, creating one massive foot-traffic jam. We’re just hinting that God might, seeing as His heavens opened just at the start time on Thursday, resulting in a deluge that turned this year’s dîner into one big wet t-shirt show. Nothing worse than a moist baguette, is there, dahling?
