Dîner en Blanc, that combination flash mob/picnic thing out of Paris you may have heard about, arrived in Miami Beach on Tuesday, Dec. 9 at Soundscape Park on the campus of the New World Center.

For twenty-six years now, in cities around the world, tens of thousands of white-clad food lovers converge annually on the most picturesque locations to dine and drink under the stars. To preserve spontaneity and secrecy, the locations are revealed at the last minute. They bring along not only their own epicurean feasts but also their own tables, chairs, crystal, silver and napery.

The night included plenty of Moet Ice champagne and a dance party after dinner (thanks to the Soundscape sound system). The mix of happy people who did not mind the chilly temperatures made for a festive occassion. Photographer Tomas Loewy captures the scene below.
