After attending the inaugural Le Diner en Blanc in Miami and Atlanta last year, I was looking forward to seeing how the dinner would evolve and grow… What new touches would they add? How would they keep it interesting? Their answer was: location!

I don’t know how they were able to pull this off (probably with the blessing of the Mayor), but they managed to shutdown Peachtree St., in the heart of Downtown Atlanta – right in front of The Fox Theatre. For my table, we enjoyed delicious pasta, bread and salad from Gio’s Chicken Amalfatino, and of course, a bottle of champagne courtesy of my friends at Moët and Chandon to toast with.

The event played host to over 1500 guests, all in upscale white attire, complete with a live band, music by my friend DJ Hands of Grace, and sparklers to light up the Atlanta night sky. For my look, I went with an industrial vibe, sporting a modern white Carhartt vest with reflectors to keep it interesting as the evening progressed… Gotta be a little unexpected.

Glad to be a guest of this event for the third time with my Moët Hennessy family. Thinking about attending the Miami one again in November… Who’s coming with me?!

Cheers,
