Dining in the Dark is a unique, multi-course experience taking place in complete darkness. Guests are invited to wear eye masks, although the room is completely “light-locked”, there is still some light which comes in through open doors and exit signs. The dinner consists of a secret menu kept quiet until the end of the event with a big reveal. Guests utilize their other available senses throughout the dinner while getting to know their server, an individual with a visual impairment or blindness. Before and during the dinner, we have live music with Drew Womack, a silent auction, raffle, cash bar, and sensory room experience. The event itself is like non-other in our community and is appreciated by all. The event is an awareness effort for our community about the abilities of people with blindness or visual impairments. All proceeds go to the programs at Brazos Valley Center for Independent Living and future awareness events.
