WHAT: Diner en Noir is a pop-up dinner modeled after a similar idea that began in Paris. The concept is a beautiful dinner party where only the hosts know the location until two hours before the event begins. Hence the “pop-up” nature of the event! As guests suddenly congregate at the venue, it’ll create a spontaneous, yet sophisticated dinner party.
WHO: Gather a group of up to 8 people for a full table. Riding solo? No worries. Individuals and smaller groups will be paired up to create a full table. Guests must be 21 years of age or older.
WHERE: That’s the mystery! Only the hosts know. At 3 p.m. on November 16, the table captains will receive a text message revealing the secret location, which they will then share with their guests. A loading zone will be made available to table captains from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. to unload any items prior to dinner.
WHY: All event proceeds benefit the Cathedral Arts Project and help provide quality arts education for underserved children in Jacksonville. For more information, please visit capkids.org.
ATTIRE: All guests are encouraged to dress in all black attire and don a creative mask. Prizes will be awarded for best dressed (male and female) and best mask (male and female).
TABLE DÉCOR: Chairs, circular tables, and black linens will be provided. Guests are asked to bring table décor – and get creative! The table with the best décor will win a prize! Open flames are prohibited. Talk to your table hosts for any questions!
FOOD & DRINKS:
An open bar consisting of wine, beer, and assorted nonalcoholic beverages is included in the cost of admission. Guests are responsible for providing food either for the table or themselves – your table captain will help make this determination.
