5468796 has been travelling around the world hosting dinners called tables for 12 for the past year as part of Canada’s prix de Rome 2013 project – gathering people around a table to talk about the importance of architectural culture. And they’re wrapping up that year in truly spectacular fashion – by coming home to Winnipeg and hosting the largest dinner party this city – and maybe the world – ever seen, in partnership with Storefront MB.
Putting this table together is going to be a feat already, but in a plan that makes me shake my head a couple of times to make sure I’m hearing it right, they’re going to set it up in only 1 hour.
The date is May 31st, the time is 7pm – 9pm. If you’re wondering where it is….well, so am I! That’s why they’re setting it up so quickly – the location is a mystery that’s only going to be revealed to diners an hour before. All they’ve said is it’ll be a prominent location in downtown Winnipeg.
This isn’t by invite only – if you want to be part of this epic dining experience, you can actually buy tickets to it at http://www.tablefor1200.ca
I’m thinking it has to be outside somewhere – there’s no room in the city that can hold a table that long, is there? Anyone got guesses on the location?
