What to expect at Dining in the Dark?
Upon arrival, you can expect to be blindfolded and brought to your table by a helpful guide. Once you have adapted to the darkness, as much as you can, the 90-minute gastronomical experience will commence. Although the rest of the evening will be shrouded in mystery, you will be able to choose between a vegan, seafood, and meat menu option when purchasing your tickets.
Without being able to rely on your eyes, you’ll be forced to take from one sense and give to another. All of the delightful bites, tropical tangs, earthy tastes, and sweet flavors will be easier to detect thanks to your enhanced sense of smell and taste.
Dining in the Dark is a fun experience to enjoy with someone special or with a group of friends. Between all of the cheeky laughs and guessing games, you won’t regret swapping out your typical date night or Saturday night plans for this one-of-a-kind event.
