Dining in the Dark offers an evening of exceptional food, wine, inspiration and blindfolds March 1 beginning at 6 pm.
It’s not unusual to close your eyes and savour a bite of your favourite dish, but have you ever consumed an entire meal that way—replacing sight with touch, taste and texture? Based on a restaurant concept popularized in Paris and New York, Dining in the Dark is a signature CNIB event where diners experience a meal without the use of their sight. Participants wear blindfolds for a sensory experience in which they can explore their meal in a whole new way.
On March 1 the ninth annual Dining in the Dark will take place at the Holland College Culinary Institute in Charlottetown. The evening will include a three-course meal, wine, and of course, blindfolds. Guests will have the chance to bid on auction item prizes, and hear from inspiring individuals who will share their experiences living with vision loss.
Tickets are $100 (income tax receipt will be issued for a portion of ticket price) and all proceeds go towards making a difference in the lives of Islanders who are blind or partially sighted.
