Chicago in White
Once a year, for a few short hours, Daniel Burnham's vision comes back to life as hundreds gather in an elegant yet whimsical celebration of all that is good about Chicago.
Much like the sparkling - yet temporary - buildings that Burnham designed, our guests temporarily appear in an open space in our beloved city, dressed in white.
Attendees of this “refined foodie flash mob” meet at pre-assigned Harmonization Points throughout the city, where the event’s secret location is revealed. Guests will then converge on the location with the evening’s equipment in tow: their own tables, white tablecloths, white chairs, white china, white napkins, silverware and glasses, plus food.
As "Chicago in White" 1,600 guests joined us on the South Drive of the Merchandise Mart, along the banks of the Chicago River.
Under the name "Diner en Blanc Chicago" we hosted 1,000 guests at Daley Plaza

Urban Daddy “7 in ’11 - Everything That Was Important in 2011” #3 on List! It was a modest proposal. Just show up under the Picasso wearing all white… Your irrepressible suaveness was part of the biggest flash mob picnic with a dress code this city’s ever seen.
NY Mag/Grub Street All the organizers wanted to do was hold a flash event… So many people tried to score spots that the website crashed. Organizers pointed out that issues were caused by nearly 2000+ refreshes per minute prior to Noon.
