I have been planning the details of our upcoming trip to California, including finding fun/cool restaurants and I came across this little gem--there is a restaurant in Los Angeles where you eat entirely in the dark!! I guess you start out in a lighted lobby area where you go over the menu and order, then you are escorted into the pitch black restaurant and served a three-course meal by blind or vision-impaired waitstaff who are specially trained to navigate around in the darkness. They also say "Special security measures are taken to make your experience both safe and enjoyable."
Apparently, the lack of sight really enhances your other senses making it a really unusual and "sensual" experience.
OMG Can you imagine how freaky that dinner would be?? I want to do it SO badly!! Unfortunately, something tells me Pickle would not be up for this dining adventure (though I'm sure my older kids would be) so it will have to wait for another trip.
Have any of you heard of this or tried it? Would you want to?
Speaking of freaky things, I can;t get enough of this song and video from Flight of the Conchords: "I Told You I Was Freaky." These guys are so crazy and this song is hilarious!!
Oh, and--Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'll be posting tomorrow our wearin' o' the green and our Irish feast!
