Maybe you didn’t get chosen in the lotto. Maybe you didn’t register in time or just didn’t register at all. Whatever the case may be, you’re not going to schmooze at Diner en Blanc, where all guests are color coordinated in white attire and lug around their diner and set-up. So what’s the alternative? Well the folks at TicketLeap.com created an event where you can wear what you want and enjoy the most casual pop-up dinner ever.
Dubbed Diner En Sweatpants, this dinner comes with no color coordinated dress code, no hefty sign up fee or secret location. Simply show up to the Schuylkill Banks (between Chestnut & Walnut) with sweats (or whatever casual attire you like), bring whatever you’d like to eat and have a chill picnic on the grass. Ticketleap will even provide blankets if you happen to forget yours. If you decide you don’t really want to pack dinner, no sweat because if you order from Wrap Shack, they’ll deliver your order right to your picnic spot ($15 minimum order).
Dinner kicks-off at 5:30 pm and runs until 8. As the late Billy Mays would say, “Wait there’s more!,” because right after dinner stay and enjoy an outdoor screening of Guardians of the Galaxy. So not only is it a cheap dinner date but with a free movie, this outing is a steal.
