Dining in the Dark

Dining in the dark

Ever wondered what it is like to eat in the dark? Psychologists have been advocating dining in the dark as the ultimate taste experience for many years. Studies show that 80 percent of people eat with their eyes; with that sense eliminated, the theory is that the other senses—namely taste and smell—take over to elevate your meal to a whole new level. After donning your blindfold in the darkened, low-lit room, you'll soon realize that focusing on taste and smell alone can be a truly enlightening experience—provided you're not afraid of the dark! UWCL has partnered with the Bentley to provide a culinary experience that will test your palate and provide awareness to our ALICE families. The meal will be served in complete darkness. The lights will be raised during dessert to share with you the story of ALICE. Many of our ALICE families have to choose between having their lights on or having a good meal. We are blessed to have both.
