Upcoming: Dining in the Dark Event at Osso

Posted By on Tue, Jan 22, 2013 at 4:11 PM

They say that when one of your senses is dulled, your other senses are heightened. "Dining in the Dark" has gained in popularity across the country and is being marketed toward those who want to experience a heightening of senses, while eating. In Charlotte, however, this dining phenomenon is also being used to serve a greater purpose: to benefit those who experience this form of dining every single day.

On Wednesday, Jan. 30 at 8 p.m., Good Eats and Meets, along with Osso Restaurant and Lounge, will join together to host a Dining in the Dark event.

The purpose of our dinner is to give guests a unique eating experience while fostering a greater understanding of what it's like to be visually impaired and to raise awareness for their cause.

For $39 a person or $79 a couple, diners will begin the evening with an hour of cocktails and mingling. From there, diners will move on to a room of total darkness as they begin their mystery meal. From the food on their plates to the faces at their table, everything will be experienced in complete darkness with only scent, sound and touch to guide them through the experience.

The price of the meal includes dinner, one drink of choice, tax and gratuity. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Fighting Blindness Foundation.

Tickets can be purchased at the event's Eventbrite website. Seats are limited and every Dining in the Dark event has sold out, so purchase tickets soon to be a part of this unique dining experience.
