THE JAN PENTLAND DINNER
DINER EN BLANC
WEDNESDAY 20 MAY
Mr and Mrs White have the pleasure to invite you to
DINE UNDER THE STARS
In Darwin, they do things differently and we're doing the same. With perfect dry season weather in May we're having a 'Diner en Blanc' under the stars. This literally means 'dinner in white' and it plays homage to the global dining event by the same name where shrouded in a veil of secrecy, hundreds of people turn up to a secret location dressed elegantly in white, for a gourmet dinner with white table-cloths, white napkins, white crockery.
You'll find out the secret location at the last minute when our buses deliver you there. It's beautiful and so is the gourmet menu, which incidentally has 3-courses of white food. The only thing that won't be white is the blazing sunset.
There has been a white dinner in 35 countries and 70 cities, but never in Darwin and never at a FCA conference. We promise a memorable and beautiful white night.
WHO SHOULD COME?
You're ALL invited.
CAN I BRING A PARTNER?
Sure you can … when you're registering, check the 'Add a guest' box.
CAN I SIT WITH PEOPLE I KNOW?
We put people with ‘their tribe’ as a default. So you'll be with people from your state or organisation, industry etc.
It's set seating, but if you have a specific request email us a few weeks before the dinner, and tell us the names of your dinner buddies. (They must be registered by then)
COST AND DRESS
Well, in Melbourne we all wear black, but just wear clothes that make you feel great.
It's semi-formal, with a touch of purple (Jan's favourite colour).
It's a 3-course sit down dinner with drinks included.
Community sector $98 (subsidised)
Everyone else $140
