What is it?
The PopUp Dinner L.A. is an elegant “pop-up” dinner picnic that will be held in an outdoor location that will remain a secret until the afternoon of the event. Similar dinners have been held in Chicago, Atlanta, San Diego and San Francisco where thousands of people have gathered to celebrate the simple things that connect us all; wonderful food, great wine, and dining with the people we love.

Guests of PopUp L.A. are required to wear all white and bring their own tableware, food, and beverages that reflect a love for dining in an elegant and graceful style. PopUp L.A. will provide tables and chairs.

The event organizers encourage all attendees to dress in white, elegant fashion from any era. Accessories and shoes need not be white.

PopUp L.A. will provide tables and chairs. Attendees Guests should provide their white tablecloths and table decor. The tables will be 8′ long x 30″ and will be set up in continuous rows. Guests should bring silverware, plates, serving ware, glasses, and whatever other tables accessories they wish. There is “ambient” lighting at the venue, but guests are responsible for lighting their own tables. There is no electricity at the site so bring candles or battery operated lights/candles.

So that large parties can buy their tickets separately but ensure they sit together, seating is first-come, first-seated.

Feel free to bring appetizers, an entree, desserts…the menu is up to you. Wine, champagne, and beer may be enjoyed, but the event organizers request that wine and champagne are limited to one bottle per person.

Leave No Trace
All parties must bring their own white trash bags and plan to take their trash and recyclables with them at the end of the evening, and dispose of any waste they generate at home (not at the garbage cans on site).

Conduct Code
The event organizers want the event to be fun and welcoming for everyone who attends, and they ask for polite behavior and genteel manners to dominate this very special evening from beginning to end. This event will include a large amount of people and its smooth operation is dependent upon everyone’s cooperation.
