Ce Soir Noir returned for another year in East Van on Tuesday night.
An alternative to the altogether swankier Diner en Blanc, Ce Soir Noir sees its attendees dress in all black for a counter-cultural picnic in Crab Park.
“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.
For Ce Soir Noir, guests were asked to dress in all-b,lack, bring their own food (and friends), blankets, and battery-powered lights. More than 1,500 people turned up in 2015 and if the photos are anything to go by, this year’s event looks like it was every bit as successful.
