NEW ORLEANS - It started in France nearly a quarter of a century ago.
On a whim, a group of friends organized what is essentially chic picnic, the location of which is kept secret until virtually the last minute.
It's called Diner en Blanc and it's now held in countries all over the world.
This month, it comes to New Orleans.
One of the organizers, Cleveland Spears of the Spears Consulting Group, was in the studio to tell us about it.
The first Diner en Blanc New Orleans will be held April 20.
The location of the dinner isn't revealed until 48 hours before the event and only goes to those who are registered.
