I was struck at the amount of effort people went to. No cream, beige or tan is allowed- every single person had to be dressed head to toe in white. Guests brought white picnic baskets filled with gourmet picnic fare (fast food is strongly discouraged), and some tables were spectacular, complete with fairly lights and flower arrangements- all put together by the guests themselves.
After surprise performances by the Rockateers and Flash Republic, a DJ played everything from old school classics to the latest RnB hits, and people let loose. At 23:00 sharp, a trumpet call sounded the end of dinner, and a collective clean up effort began, continuing until the site was as neat as it originally was prior to the start of the evening. After that, guests left the site together in the same way they arrived, by bus.
