An evening of exceptional food, wine, inspiration and blindfolds...

It’s not unusual to close your eyes and savour a bite of your favourite dish... but have you ever consumed an entire meal that way – replacing sight with touch, taste and texture?

Based on a restaurant concept popularized in Paris and New York, Dining in the Dark is a signature CNIB event where diners experience a meal without the use of their sight. Participants wear blindfolds for a unique, sensory experience in which they can explore their meal in a whole new way.

On April 11, 2019, CNIB will host its annual Dining in the Dark event at the Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion. The evening will include a three-course meal catered by Flavor, wine, and of course, blindfolds.

Guests will have the chance to bid on auction item prizes, and hear from inspiring individuals who will share their experiences living with vision loss. Tickets are $75 each and students, as well as CNIB clients and a guest are eligible for a reduced price of $50 each.

Proceeds support the CNIB Foundation programs that empower Cape Bretonners impacted by blindness to live their dreams and tear down barriers to inclusion.
