I had a great time at the dinner. I'm regretting missing the first one and am absolutely on board for the second one. As someone who attended alone, not only was the food interesting, but also trying to socialize and converse with people I couldn't see!

Their Username Is

This was our first lights out dinner and our first experience with the Idea Festival. We enjoyed the nuance of being blindfolded during the dinner and having to use all of our other senses to distinguish what was happening around us. She could hear the trays coming and smell the food as it was coming to our table. I enjoyed trying to guess the wine pairings. It is amazing and sad at the same time that we take the rest of our senses for granted. The food was exquisite and neither of us would have ever ordered any of them had we been allowed to see the menu. The drink pairings were fabulous. Chef Ucan's genius and creativity with this menu from texture to taste was a great experience. We had a great time and will absolutely do this again.
