LACONIA — On Monday evening, November 11, the Central New Hampshire Advisory Committee of the New Hampshire Association for the Blind will host a "Dinner in the Dark" at Hector's Fine Food and Spirits in downtown Laconia.
The evening starts with hors' douerves and a cash bar from 5:30-6:30 p.m. with dinner served from 6:30-9 p.m. Tickets are $30.
This unique sensory awareness experience will take participants on a journey - all in the dark- experiencing dining as a blind person, using only the senses of taste, sound and touch. Created in Germany, "Dining in the Dark" is a one-of-a-kind concept that has been enjoyed by many people across Europe.
To date, the organization has hosted similar events at Rudi's in Portsmouth and The Way We Cook in Manchester. Both were sold-out. All funds raised, as well as a portion of all tickets sold, will support the many critical programs and services that have helped people of central New Hampshire live full and independent lives despite their vision loss.
