Sept. 10: Pearly Whites
We know there’s a rule that you’re not supposed to wear white after Labor Day, but when the Collingswood Pop Up Gala rolls around, you have to make an exception. This exciting annual event follows the vein of Phialdelphia Diner en Blanc: Guests register in advance, bring their meals, then dress all in white with all-white accessories to wine and dine at a top-secret spot that is only revealed right before the event starts. It always draws a crowd and remains one of the more exciting evenings around town.
