Dallas, Texas – September 7, 2017 – Le Dîner en Blanc – Dallas is now sold out.  Phase 3 opened today and closed within minutes as the last of 2400 available spots were claimed. Guests will attend the coveted pop-up dinner party at a mysterious location on Friday, October 6, 2017. “We are thrilled by the excitement Dallas has for this event,” says Rachael Kissel, co-host of Le Diner en Blanc – Dallas and co-owner of RK Meetings & Events.

Thousands of guests dressed in head-to-toe white will gather at rallying points across the Metroplex on the evening of October 6th. Guided by Diner en Blanc volunteers, these groups will then be whisked off on a chartered bus to one of the city’s most iconic settings. Over the course of the evening, Dîner en Blanc guests will dine under the stars and enjoy live music, entertainment, and dancing. Expect the traditional napkin wave and a surprise light-up-the-night moment.  Afterwards guests will pack up their belongings, pick up all their litter, and head back into the night, leaving no sign of their evening behind, except for their footprints.

Le Dîner en Blanc – Dallas 2016 attracted over 2,200 cultural enthusiasts for a memorable evening at Dallas City Hall. The 2015 inaugural event hosted 1,800 guests at Ronald Kirk Bridge (formally known as the Continental Avenue Pedestrian Bridge), with the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge as its stunning backdrop. Both years the location was successfully kept secret until guests arrived.

Kelsey Lewis at Vintage Tex

Longtime vintage enthusiast Kelsey Lewis often wears Vintage Tex in her music videos and thinks the newly renovated shop is the perfect spot for a pop-up musical event. “In Nashville, they set up these kind of listening-rooms all the time but you don’t see them happening very often around Dallas-Fort Worth! I love performing in intimate spaces and connecting with my fans,” says Lewis, whose music is inspired by Norah Jones, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, and Colbie Caillat. “Half of my closet is Vintage Tex. I wear their clothes at most of my shows so I could not be more excited about this event!”
