Dîner en Blanc Vancouver 2014 may or may not be happening in David Lam Park

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      At 5 p.m., media outlets will find out the top-secret location of this evening's Dîner en Blanc Vancouver. However, organizers have asked attending media folks not to share the identity of the site until 6 p.m.

      This journalist will not be attending the all-dressed-in-white dinner for three thousand invited guests. But a look at the Twitter timeline of a local broadcaster reveals the likely location of tonight's elite extravaganza.

      Ron Wilson has tweeted the following photos of the goings-on in Yaletown's condo-surrounded David Lam Park.

      So what you think of David Lam Park as Dîner en Blanc's super-secret location?

      I think tonight would be perfect for an impromptu colour run through David Lam Park. Who's with me? BYO powdered tempura paint!

      Wait what closure of a public park for a private event! Cry Havoc, let slip the dogs of war! I certainly hope the city moves to issue an eviction to these pompous buffoons, if for nothing else to show that Vision is a party for "all" the people!

      I live across from David Lam.
      They have a bunch of tables set up and centrepiece with an Aerial Silk artist in it.

      Residents don't even get a notice like they do for other events. I'm not looking forward to a bunch of drunk white clad idiots in the park tonight.

      This is the worst journalism ever. Sounds like someone is upset they couldn't go so they're ruining the party for everyone. Stephen Hui you are a hack.

      Hi Steve Jones: I'm not sure how this post is "ruining the party for everyone".

      Unless you didn't want anyone who's not all dressed in white to see you all dressed in white.

      This event has shut down the seawall bike and pedestrian lanes?!
      They placed barricades and a sign detouring cyclists onto a lower pedestrian walkway. Very dangerous. Cyclists should dismount for their own safety and that of pedestrians. Where are police, security and the city of Vancouver Engineering department?

      You are awesome ! I'm going to ride my bike through the barricades. Anyone want to come?????

      All I know is this city is congested enough as it is. Having super secret parties that block off any roads, or create even more traffic build up is stupid. So to the organizers of this party, I say, "I hope someone spills spaghetti on your white clothes"

      Seriously people?! You're actually complaining about a 5 hr once a year event that brings a little mystery, culture, and Fun into our city because it momentarily disrupts a small snap of it (that most of you probably won't even be going near tonight, lol)?!! Suck it up for a few hours guys, and enjoy the the little piece of magic, whether you're involved or not. Geez, no wonder we're called the No Fun City with attitudes like this!! Its MY backyard too...And I'm choosing to soak it in. Otherwise, move to the 'burbs ;-) Vive la Diner (& all the beautiful celebrations we're afforded!).

      I see the No Fun Squad is out in full force. How horrible that a very popular event takes place in Vancouver without asking the usual curmudgeons if they agree.

      Alicia, you live across the street from David Lam park. Not many people can afford that so quit your fucking whining and go take an extra yoga class tonight and relax.
