For your Dinner in White, guests will arrive at the secret location together and are accompanied by a table leader who will assign their precise seating arrangements. Seats are allotted on-site symmetrically with men seated on one side and women on the other.
Without wasting any time, guests are to set up their table and chairs. Guests wait for their entire row to have set up before they take their seats. Once all guests are settled in, they spontaneously lift their white cloth napkins to indicate the beginning of the dinner. Traditionally this is a sign of having successfully occupied the public space.
