Trying Blind

When in love, I have found conversation to flow effortlessly in the dark without the distractions of facial expression or body language. Darkness makes it easier to cry, confide, confess or get drunk - apparently dining with a roomful of strangers in the dark can be pleasurable as well. It heightens their enjoyment of the meal

Patrons never see the food because the three-course meal is served in complete darkness – so diners must rely on other senses to discern the meal.

Not surprising therefore that blind dating agencies have found a natural habitat in the blind restaurant. Other than the obvious advantage of being able to talk to a stranger without the awkwardness that a blind date is fraught with, you can also leave mysteriously in the dark without revealing yourself to your date should you never want to meet again.
