Dining in the Dark Event Offers Unique Insight into Living with Vision Loss

BROCKVILLE – On January 19th, 2017, The Tall Ships Waterfront Grille will play host to a truly unique dining experience in support of CNIB Ontario.

Dining in the Dark is a unique culinary experience where guests can experience a meal without the use of sight. Based on a restaurant concept popularized in Paris and New York, guests can explore flavours, textures and aromas in a whole new way. Guests learn techniques like how to locate items at their place settings, how to identify items on their plate, how to manage the dining process and how to pour beverages.

Dining in the Dark events are never meant to replicate the experience of living with blindness or partial sight. These events are simply designed to help people gain a better understanding of vision loss and the types of vision rehabilitation services that are available to members of our community. For many, this event may also illustrate some of the everyday activities we perhaps take for granted, like reading a menu, pouring cream into a cup of coffee, or locating cutlery, condiments or items on our dinner plate.

Join us at Tall Ships Waterfront Grille for an evening you won’t forget! The event runs from 6pm until 10pm. Tickets are $125 per person.

To reserve your seat or if you are interested in a corporate sponsorship or corporate table sales contact Penny Bagnell at 1-613-542-4975 ext 5099 or penny.bagnell@cnib.ca.
