N.H. Association of the Blind offering patrons uniquire dining experience on Monday evening

LACONIA — 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 on Monday evening, Nov. 11.
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.
Keynote speaker for the evening will be Randy Pierce, association board member, client and founder of 2020 Vision Quest. "Four More Feet," a documentary film that captures his quest to summit all 48 of New Hampshire's highest peaks in a single winter season, was released earlier this year.
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.
Diners will let their senses of taste and smell take over as they share an experience of eating in the dark with friends, family and encounter first-hand what it is like to be blind. Guests will delight in the complementary aromas that surround them as they taste the delicious textures and subtleties that captivate their palates.
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.
