What an eventful evening with so many other residents of Los Angeles!
The beginning was a bit hectic and intolerable but after a few glasses of champagne, we completely forgot about the horrific transpiration situation hours before!
I just wish our group leader (bus from BH) was a bit more organized because we arrived late and missed the whole napkin spin and other stuff.
Jo and I lugged one square table, two white foldable chairs, 1 cooler, 1 stick of bread, huge bag with stuff and ourselves all the way from Beverly Hills to the secret location.
Two years ago, it was on Rodeo Blvd., which we missed and was a way better location that Pershing Square. But I would like to say that LA is prolly really strict so blocking streets were not acceptable this year. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
I mean, Pershing Square is an open park where you can go and have a meal any time you want. So due to that reason, the location sucked, no novelty factor at all!
Jo and I were sweating and disgusting throughout the whole process. It was such a warm night and I couldn’t believe the amount of perspiration that I was oozing…
Luckily we had a hand cart and we were able to roll everything. I saw a few familiar faces and wanted to meet new friends, but it seemed like everyone was very cliquey and not engaging with people outside of their group. Note to self: come with a lot of friend next time.
We registered late so we barely had time to prep let alone get people sponsored and wait for a response from the Diner en Blanc team.
Even though the tranSportation part was a bitch, we forgot about it all by the end of
our first bottle the night and we danced the night away! It was too much fun… I can’t wait to do it again AND I know how to prepare myself next time. 🙂
