Diner En Noir: Back In Black

November 16, 2019@6:00 pm-10:00 pm


Join the CAPtivators at the 7th Annual Diner en Noir on Saturday, November 16, from 6-10 p.m. Gather your closest friends, co-workers, or neighbors for a spontaneous, yet refined evening of dining, dancing and drinking at a clandestine location. Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed, best mask, and best table décor.

WHAT: Diner en Noir is a pop-up dinner modeled after a similar idea that began in Paris. The concept is a beautiful dinner party where only the hosts know the location until two hours before the event begins. Hence the “pop-up” nature of the event! As guests suddenly congregate at the venue, it’ll create a spontaneous, yet sophisticated dinner party.

WHO: Gather a group of up to 8 people for a full table. Riding solo? No worries. Individuals and smaller groups will be paired up to create a full table. Guests must be 21 years of age or older.

WHERE: That’s the mystery! Only the hosts know. At 3 p.m. on November 16, the table captains will receive a text message revealing the secret location, which they will then share with their guests. A loading zone will be made available to table captains from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. to unload any items prior to dinner.

WHEN: Saturday, November 16, 6-10 p.m.

WHY: All event proceeds benefit the Cathedral Arts Project and help provide quality arts education for underserved children in Jacksonville. For more information, please visit capkids.org.

ATTIRE: All guests are encouraged to dress in all black attire and don a creative mask. Prizes will be awarded for best dressed (male and female) and best mask (male and female).

Chairs, circular tables, and black linens will be provided. Guests are asked to bring table décor – and get creative! The table with the best décor will win a prize! Open flames are prohibited. Talk to your table hosts for any questions!

An open bar consisting of wine, beer, and assorted nonalcoholic beverages is included in the cost of admission.
Guests are responsible for providing food either for the table or themselves – your table captain will help make this determination.
