This event originated in France before spreading around the world. Guests are invited to wear white and bring their own chairs, silverware (and a few other items) for an outdoor picnic. The location is always kept a mystery until the last minute. Last year, it was The Park outdoor promenade on the Strip, so you know something just as exciting is in store this time around. Register in advance.
