Default Diner en Blanc?

Has anyone ever been to one of these?

this apparently started in France quite a while ago when as lore states friends that lived apart from each other found themselves in Paris they wanted to get together for a picnic/meeting and to recognize each other - they wore all white. Then it expanded into a more public event after that.

The local one is on thursday - my friend is going just for the sight of it - picture taking and all. I passed on an invite. I don't like crowds of people I don't know, I don't like wearing all white (makes me feel virgin suicide-y), I DON'T like the idea of setting up and taking down my own dining spot and bringing/cooking my own food for a night out, nor do I have enough friends whom would participate - the friend that is going is only going with two other people and I think if you're a single you have to sit amongst a group of strangers.

Will look forward to seeing photos of it though...
Feudin' and fightin' and a-fussin,'
That's all that's goin' on with us'n!
We are such neighborly people, peaceful and sweet!
All except when we happen to meet.

Yep, we have them in Darmstadt every year. They're pretty cool and lots of fun!

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

That looks really cool! I wouldn't go either, though... white pants creep me out. I'd feel like I was at a huge P. Diddy party.
