Dining In The Dark-A Feast For The Senses
I wanted to give those of you in Columbia the opportunity to share in this truly unique experience. Come on up to Fort Mill, SC and join in on the excitement!
We are partnering up with The Foundation Fighting Blindness and Charlotte's finest Farm To Fork restaurant Passion8 to bring you a meal, where nothing meets the eye and is unlike any other you have ever had before! Imagine that you are recognizing friends by their voice, sounds tell a story, aromas come alive and elegance is felt. In this era of information overload, visual stimulation has reached an all time pinnacle. But imagine, just for an hour or two that you cannot see, that you are abandoning vision in exchange for a new, more stimulating dining experience – this is “Dining in the Dark”.
The purpose of our dinner is three-fold: To give guests a unique eating experience while fostering a greater understanding of what it's like to be blind and to raise funds for their cause.
Dining in the Dark – will seat you in a literally pitch-black dining room where you savor a full three course meal in a room where you can’t see a single, solitary thing, from your plate of mystery food to the faces of your fellow diners. It will be more than a culinary experience. It will be a sensory and social experience to the tenth power.
The evening will begin at 7pm where all the quests will mix and mingle over cocktails(one is included in the cost of the meal-suprise!) before entering our inner sanctum of darkness. We will seat everyone and make sure that you are comfortable before all the lights go out and then the meal will begin. The rest is up to you. We will be having a phone check and anything else that might interfere with the darkness, if needed. We will also be offering a VERY SPECIAL food opportunity being offered by Passion8 to the highest bidder...details will be revealed at the event and the money raised will be donated to the Foundation.
Spread the word and come with a couple of your friends. Seating is limited and is going fast! Don't wait and miss out!
