Nice article „French White Dinner, Grünau Style“ in the The Leipzig Glocal with a lot of great pics by Michél Boetig. There are different myths about why the first „dîner en blanc“ has been initiated in Paris. Another one is more political: people of Paris wanted to reclaim the public space and occupied a very tourstic place with a white dinner. As far as we know, the first white dinner in Leipzig took place in 2011 in Rabet, organised by Andrea Büttner, but there might (and should) have been many more. It just should never be a commercial but a social event.
