Wednesday & Thursday nights
7:30PM - 10PM Come Experience A Concert & Sensory Tasting In The Pitch Dark! The Austin Blind Cafe, is a mind bending/heart opening experience where the audience will indulge in a vegetarian 'Sensory Tasting Experience' sourced from local sponsors and farms, participate in a Q & A forum with their blind wait staff & enjoy an 'unencumbered music listening' concert of original music by Rosh & One Eye Glass Broken & The Constellation Prize...all in the complete pitch dark!!! About the event: A delicious vegetarian 'Sensory Tasting Experience' will be prepared to delight your senses by our lovely volunteers and a local Chef. We source as much of the produce and food from local sponsors and farms as possible. You will be sharing tables 'family style' with other guests working together to get your food. Your heart and mind will be opened as you celebrate and explore the darkness with our professional blind waitstaff. A question and answer forum will offer you opportunities to learn about the lives of blind persons by sharing in their personal stories. You will experience an 'unencumbered music listening' concert, without the distraction of visual conditioning, social etiquette & your cell phones! This is a 'quiet listening experience' where the audience is empowered as a group to practice listening to music deeply. Rarely, do people actually 'listen' to live music anymore. The darkness will allow you a chance to go deeply inside yourself, with the rhythms, melodies and lyrics of the music, in ways you may never have before. This is NOT, just another dinner in the dark...it's a community experience where people connect, learn and grow from working together to participate in something greater than themselves. The Blind Cafe is designed to help you feel more alive, awake, present and connected to your world. With the love and laughter of those at your table you will break bread together, building friendship and community on a night you will never forget or SEE! A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to a local organization that helps to improve the lives of the blind in Austin, TX.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
