Burgess was reluctant to reveal many details — she likes to surprise her guests. "It's really about creating a moment in a space that's completely different than people are used to," she tells us. But expect a fourteen-foot sheer muslin tent to shelter 60 or so diners (a mix of foodies and downtown creatives; James Iha of the Smashing Pumpkins has previously attended) as they feast — family style, with rugs and cushions for seats — on a three-course dinner of stewed lamb, grain-based salads like tabbouleh, stuffed zucchinis, and similar Moroccan fare. Might there be a trapeze artist? You'll have to wrangle an invite to find out. (Official guests are allowed to bring one friend.)
And for those who've sworn off Williamsburg, rumor has it that the next party, in February, may happen in Manhattan — a first.
