What was supposed to be a one-off tongue-in-cheek response to Diner en Blanc has become something bigger.
Yes, Ce Soir Noir is back for another year due to popular demand.
Last year, the event described by organizers as “an art project” saw 1,500 people crowd Crab Park dressed all in black to have a counter-cultural picnic.
Instead of taking place on the same day as Diner en Blanc, however, this year it will take place on August 30.
“While picnics will not do your taxes or fight for your bike lanes they will give you good chi,” reads the Facebook event’s description.
And don’t forget to follow the very strict rules laid out for Ce Soir Noir:
Just like last year, it will take place at beautiful (?) Crab Park.
Where: Crab Park – 101 West Waterfront Road, Vancouver
When: Tuesday, August 30; 5 pm
