You've heard of a flash mob -- those impromptu, choreographed dance parties that happen out in public -- but what about a flash feast? On Aug. 16, diners across the city will converge at a yet-to-be-released location for an impromptu outdoor picnic event called Le Diner en Blanc. These public picnics have already happened in places like New York, Montreal (above), Sydney, Mexico City, and Paris -- the event on Aug. 16 will be the first in Boston. Those looking to take part in the fun can purchase tickets for $25-$35 prior to the event at the Diner en Blanc website, and will be assembled at various "rallying points" before organizers escort them to the exact location. Participants must pack all the ingredients for their feast with them -- food, tables, chairs, silverware, white linens, etc -- and must dress all in white (Diner en Blanc means "dinner in white" in French). Aug. 16, 6:30 p.m., $25-$35, 21+ boston.dinerenblanc.info
