Dine in the Dark to help the visually impaired

Posted: Updated:

 Dine in the dark and experience the world from a new perspective. Visually Impaired Preschool Services (VIPS) is hosting the fourth Annual Dining in the Dark event on Saturday, March 2.

Chef Anoosh Shariat will prepare a four meal feast that guests can enjoy blindfolded. Diners can experience enhanced senses of taste, textures and aromas of the food.

There will be a blindfolded bourbon tasting hosted by the Brown-Forman Corporation. There will be a local art exhibit featuring tactile piece created by the blind and visually impaired. All pieces sold form the exhibit will benefit VIPS.

Guests will also participate in activities that will teach them what it's like to teach a child who is blind.

The 4th annual Dining in the Dark event is March 2 at Flame Run at 815 West Market Street. Cocktails will be served at 7 p.m. and dinner starts at 8 p.m.
