Be sure to save the date for the San Antonio Public Library Foundation‘s 7th Annual fall fundraiser, Nuit Blanche | A Night of Parisian Revelry!
On Thursday, September 21st, the Landa Library Gardens will be transformed into a posh picnic provided by some of our favorite Alamo City hotspots for nearly 200 guests! Nuit Blanche is a rendition of the fabulous Parisian “Diner en Blanc,” where thousands of Paris’s chic residents gather in the city’s most picturesque locations for an epicurean feast. See all of the event info below!
Seating IS limited and this event is always a sellout — get your table or tickets now! Visit http://www.saplf.org/event/nuit-blanche/ or call (210) 225-4728 Ext. 16.
Nuit Blanche welcomes singles and couples alike. Upon registration, guests will receive a program with a Parisian street name (table) and seat number that corresponds with a place setting. Each king’s table set for 24 will be served three gourmet picnic baskets from different restaurant partners. Guests will enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres before sitting down to a family-style dinner at candlelit tables dressed in white.
Steven Lee Moya will spin French tunes mixed with dance beats. Caricature artists will capture guest’s best expressions, and a raffle and silent auction will spark friendly competition all night.
