Pop the Town
A new chic flash mob picnic dinner for Oakland
“Instead of “going out to dinner” they’ll just be “going out for atmosphere.” – Andy Warhol
OAKLAND — Imagine hundreds of The Town’s most creative and daring diners coming together for a flash picnic, “dressed their best in black”, to enjoy an evening of great food, style, community and creativity.
On Saturday June 2nd, the evening will spontaneously unfold when the location is revealed just moments before it is to take place.
Once you have your ticket, pack your table linens, a gourmet dinner and be ready to make your table POP.
Get creative, gather your friends and come dressed in elegant black, but make it POP. After you set the table, sit back and enjoy the dining experience with musical entertainment including famed DJ Fuze from Digital Underground and dance to the Josh Jones Latin Jazz Quartet who helped spark the Bay Area’s acid jazz scene in the 90’s.
We will provide the tables, chairs, entertainment and a very unconventional dining location. The table is your blank canvas to POP and create a festive tone for the evening. Bring your plates, linens and then add some flavor. This is taking “Dining Out” in Oakland to a whole new level.
Guests of Pop The Town will experience the beauty and value of their city’s public spaces while engaging in each other. It’s all part of a magical night that gives back to their community.
No other event celebrates spontaneous creativity in Oakland like this.
Pop The Town is inspired by a 30-year tradition of annual picnic dining and partying that originated in Paris.
No Host Bar. Ages 21 & up.
Saturday June 2nd, 2018 – Location revealed at 1pm – Dinner at 7pm
Tickets are $35/seat available on Eventbrite:
All proceeds benefit North Oakland Community School.
