Dining In The Dark is exactly what it sounds like: you either wear a blindfold or are escorted into a blackened room to enjoy your meal. The idea is to handicap your vision to amplify touch, sound, smell and taste. Dark dining flips the traditional order of date night. Until now, dimming the lights marked the closing scene of an evening rather than the opening act.
If your partner reaches for a cell phone or TV clicker more often than reaching for you, it’s time for a blind date. Immerse yourself in the perfume of wild tomatoes, the sound of Portuguese Fado, the texture of kimchi.
No excuses if a Dark Dinner event is not within your geographic reach. Try blindfolding your significant other and serve up a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. Orchestrate a celebration of the other senses, then enjoy wherever that leads. It will do wonders for your love and relationship.
