      Update (August 26): For photos and video from the events, see the following posts:

      Part of the fun of attending Dîner en Blanc Vancouver is that the location is kept top secret until just before the event.

      Last year's edition of the annual outdoor gala, where everyone wears white, takes lots of selfies, and allegedly conducts themselves with the "greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette", took place in Yaletown's David Lam Park.

      Based on a Twitter post, the location of this year's Dîner en Blanc, which happens this evening (August 25), may or may not be Canada Place.

      Meanwhile, the site of the anti-Dîner en Blanc event, Ce Soir Noir, is no secret.

      The free and "not fancy" picnic will take place this evening at CRAB Park in the Downtown Eastside, starting at 5 p.m.

      Ce Soir Noir attendees are asked to wear their "blackest clothes" and leave their dogs at home.

      Update (4:30 p.m.): Here's more tweets from Canada Place:

      And they can see the Diner en Noir further along the waterfront and cock their noses at the hoi-polloi.

      I see that they only paid $4690 to rent David Lam Park last year. See: http://bobmackin.ca/?p=2999

      People actually enjoy going to events such as this?
      I'd rather sit with normal people. Thanks, but no thanks.

      I love a glass of wine and a good charcuterie board as much as the next person, but the pretentiousness of this event makes me recoil. To coincide with next year's picnic, we'll do baloney and cheese roll-ups on my patio, ok guys?

      With that many vain insufferables in one spot where's a Khaleesi dragon when you need one.

      Give me the #4 or #7 bus any day over these pretentious tossers

      The whole thing has such a weird elitist hipster/Mario Antoinette vibe from the attendees

      At least some of the neck beard crowd appeared to shave for the event
