WINNIPEG — One of the world’s longest dining tables is making a comeback for a second year this spring.

Table for 1200 — or Table for 1201 as it’s called this year — will be Saturday, May 23 from 7-9 p.m.

The dining event will once again highlight Winnipeg’s emerging design scene by combing architecture, design and the culinary arts. Winnipeg chefs Mandel Hitzer (Deer + Almond) and Joe Kalturnyk (RAW Gallery) and Ben Kramer (Diversity Food Services) will prepare food for the evening.

Last year’s event donned an all-white theme on the Esplanade Riel pedestrian bridge. Guests weren’t informed of the dinner’s location until one hour before and had to bring their own chairs. May’s event will follow a similar theme to be held at an undisclosed, but prominent downtown Winnipeg location.

Table for 1201 is organized by Storefront Manitoba, and will see funds raised support awareness of architecture, design and urbanism.

Tickets go on sale to the public in early May. Visit TableFor1201.ca for further details.
