Positive Social Change In The Dark

The Blind Cafe, is a ‘pop-up event’, a mind bending / heart opening experience where the audience indulges in a vegetarian ‘Sensory Tasting Experience' prepared by a local Chef,  participates in a Q & A with their blind wait staff and enjoys a concert of original music…all in the pitch dark. This is NOT just another dinner in the dark…it’s a community experience where people connect, learn and grow from working together to participate in something greater than themselves. The Blind Cafe is designed to help you feel more alive, awake, present and connected to your world. We partner with the local blind organizations to raise awareness and benefit the local blind community.      

"The Blind Café does not try to perfectly recreate blindness. Instead, it allows people to interact, trust each other, and experience community in an entirely new way. In the dark, there are no uncomfortable glances, no self-consciousness about what you’re wearing or what you weigh, no distinction between the sighted and blind."

"There is something about engaging in organic conversation with a room full of strangers who can’t see each other that instills a sense of community among the group. At the end, a candle is lit and it feels as if you're waking up from a dream that you somehow shared with everyone around you.
