If there is such a thing as extreme eating, this might be an event that qualifies as such. At least, that's what my my crotchety thirty-something tendencies tell me. Call me old fashioned, but I like to see my food when I eat it. Whenever I dine, I eat twice. First, with my eyes and then with my mouth.
An upcoming event in Charlotte, however, takes this concept and flips it on its head.
On Tuesday, October 1, guests are invited to partake in Dining in the Dark, a multi-course meal hosted by Good Eats and Meets at Bubble Charlotte. Guests will be led to an "inner sanctum of darkness" and treated to a multi-sensory experience sans one thing, their sight. Guest will dine in complete darkness and will have to taste, feel and hear their way through a fanciful dinner that will keep them guessing on multiple levels.
Tickets for the event are $49 per person and $89 per couple. Tax and tip are included in the price. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit Foundation Fighting Blindness. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. To purchase your tickets, head here. Bubble Charlotte is located at the Epicentre at 210 E. Trade Street, Charlotte.
