More on Infinitely Dinner Society
Infinitely Dinner Society arrived on the scene in April 2017 with an Instagram account that posted an infinitely looping video and teasing “Summer 2017”. The following day the group launched a Tumblr that offered the chance to apply for membership into the Dinner Society. The application asks you to explore your previous experiences with food, art, and memory, and may hint at what’s to come at the dinner parties.
The Instagram continued to post videos of infinite loops, with frequent mentions of the number 8 (which itself is an infinite loop). Eventually their plan was revealed, “1 room. 2 dinner per month. 4 months per membership cycle. 8 members per cycle.” It appears that eight individuals will be able to come together for a total of eight dinners to experience food, art, and each other’s company. What they may eat, see, and learn about each other remains a mystery.
Infinitely Dinner Society announced that they had run into a few minor problems in building “THE DINING ROOM” but would be offering tickets to Midnight Snacks that did not require membership. The first of those Midnight Snacks asked the hungry and curious participants to journey to different street corners in Hollywood and draw a circle around themselves with chalk. With that complete they were given a donut, a story, and a visual component that were all tied together.
The second Midnight Snack experience was for groups of 4 people. Participants met in a parking lot and were joined by mysterious dancers who entwined the participants in rope and then hand fed them a selection of four gourmet cheeses.
The third Midnight Snack experience returned to it’s solo roots and involved radio transmissions and oyster shooters.
Midnight Snacks also made an appearance at the 2018 Overlook Festival serving Bananas Foster to two participants at a time on a dark street in the New Orleans French Quarter. This involved warm bananas, vanilla ice cream, and a decadent sauce made from butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, dark rum, and banana liqueur. While two women danced with and for you, the food was prepped and served.
The Dinner Society has announced future Midnight Snacks that will including watermelon, cheese plates, and oyster shooters. We expect more news to be coming soon on for those offered membership to the dinner parties. Will you dine with them?
Quote from our Recollection of a Midnight Snack:
“1 am. Hollywood. I find myself on a street corner as a woman across the street hula hoops. Is it a part of what I’m about to experience or just a random occurrence on the streets of Hollywood in the middle of the night? I then see a piece of light green chalk lying on the ground. I pick it up, stoop down, and draw a circle around myself. Following the instructions, I had received the day before, I text “I am inside a circle,” to a mysterious number. Almost as soon as I do, a woman in a dark green masquerade mask appears, wearing a blue apron with white stripes over her street clothes. She walks up to me, places headphones over my ears, and my midnight snack with Infinitely Dinner Society begins.
A man’s voice pipes in through the headphones. He talks about wandering through the streets of a city where the people have “friendly faces and unfriendly attitudes.” He doesn’t have much money in his wallet, but does notice a neon sign for a hotel. It hadn’t registered before then, but I’m also staring at a neon sign on the opposite corner, where the woman continues hula hooping.”
