Dining in the Dark is one of the most popular events on the calendar. This unique dining experience is co-hosted with our partner, Lighthouse Central Florida, and is meant to offer an immersive experience into a world of smell, taste, sound and texture–all in total darkness!
The event illustrates the isolating condition that can result from vision loss and chronic hunger. Diners are treated to a multi-course, gourmet meal prepared by professional chefs and are served by members of the Orlando Police Department’s SWAT team—who navigate the pitch-black room outfitted in night-vision goggles. After dinner the lights slowly come up and diners offer telling, empathetic, testimonials about their experience.
