Dining in the Dark
Dining in the Dark simulates an experience of visual impairment during an array
of activities. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in sensory
experiences such as blind wine and bourbon tastings, as well as blind
aromatherapy. At the conclusion of all sensory experiences, guests will enter a
dimly lit dining room, where the gourmet chef and representatives from the
Lighthouse will share insights into the challenges of dining while blind or with a
visual impairment. Guests will then blindfold themselves and enjoy a sumptuous
three-course meal. After each course, guests will remove their blindfolds while
hosts discuss the food and the dining experience in tandem.
