One more thing these twin cities have in common is Le Dîner en Blanc, a tradition shared by thousands.   Le Dîner en Blanc – Philadelphia took the world stage, holding their first picnic at Logan Circle in 2012, which, co-host Natanya Dibona remarks, “was designed by a French architect and sits on the Ben Franklin Parkway (aka the Champs-Élysée of America!).” Like the Champs-Élysée, the Parkway is beautifully green, lined with trees, and book-ended by historic monuments: City Ha...
