Questions: Do you like secrets? Do you like fun? Is there anything cooler than being included in a super fun secret? Answers: Secrets and fun are awesome and there's nothing more satisfying than being in on a sweet hush-hush underground party. Registration for the secret party of the year has just opened and now you have the chance to be one of the secret elite. Founded in France nearly 30 years ago, Diner en Blanc is an exclusive “white party” pop-up picnic that happens once a year. The magically decorated location is revealed only when participants load up on the bus. Tickets are limited and can be hard to come by, but follow these small steps, buy a white outfit, and become way cooler than all your friends.
Step 1: Find a date! Tickets are sold in pairs so you'll need a partner for this party. Step 2: Register online at http://albuquerque.dinerenblanc.info/register. Step 3: Buy an all white outfit and table cloth, and start planning your meal. Since this is a pop-up event, guests are required to pack their own dinner. Step 3: After Phase One Registration is over, invites will be sent out and the waiting list will be called upon.
Don't miss your chance to be a part of the coolest secret of the year.

Sometimes people join me but then they're able to walk faster ahead of me and leave. I can see the exit I just can't reach it. I think it continues underground because the end isn't particularly bright. I don't mind that I'm in the hallway—the spiders don't scare me and I do prefer things to be darker. I'm just bored, I want to leave to be somewhere else. Anywhere else.

At 6 p.m., the September sun cast a rosy glow on the building across the street. I parked and my friend Mike checked the map. From the sidewalk, we saw a woman heading our way, red and white apron flapping in the wind.
