The Capital City's Premiere "Dîner en Blanc" Pop-Up Picnic from 116 Espresso and Wine Bar!

Bonjour, mes amies! We have a special event to share from our friends at 116 Espresso and Wine Bar, one that joins our love of good food, conviviality, philanthropy, and spectacle! 

Inspired by the Dîner en Blanc epicurean movement sweeping major cities around the globe, 116 Espresso and Wine Bar presents its very own “Dinner in White” series in the Capital City. Oh là là. This series, served Pop-Up Picnic-style, kicks off on Sunday, September 29, from 7p.m. to 10p.m., and a portion of ticket sales will support a local arts group (awesome).

Event deets via Chef Ryan Whittaker: The location is kept a secret as long as possible (emailed the day of), and tables, chairs, and linens are provided, but guests are required to bring their own plates, glasses and utensils, and of course, must wear all white!  Pssst--more surprises to come. 

The Menu: Chef will prepare a locally-sourced, French-inspired picnic meal served family style and paired with French wines. (We imagine the spectacle and spontaneity will be served à la mode.)
