Welcome to Opaque – Dining in the Dark
In this era of information overload, visual stimulation has reached an all time pinnacle. But imagine, just for an hour or two that you cannot see, that you are abandoning vision in exchange for a new, more stimulating dining experience – this is “Dining in the Dark”. Meals are served by our blind servers in a pitch black dining room.

Pros: Open carry = no problem!
Cons: Minimum Gen III Night Vision and/or weapon mounted surefire required.
Is there anyone reading this that isn't too paranoid to even consider eating here?
He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. - Jim Elliott
The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
Who eats there?
Kooks, nuts, and fruits...mostly
Certainly not me!
Proverbs 27:12 says: “The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.”

I'm not putting anything in my mouth that I haven't positively identified first!
I immediately think how convenient it would be to rob the place...
There was a restaurant like that on CSI Miami last season.
How does the blind waiter know when my glass needs refilled?
No, I don't think I would be eating at a place like that, all the reasons that have been brought up already, and many more. I don't think they will be open very long.
Besides, if it is dark in there, how nasty do you think the floors and booths, tables, silverware, ect. are with everything that gets spilled, and no one is able to see to clean it up.
So, so wrong idea for a restaruant.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

Might be fun to visit with a set of night vision goggles. Just to watch what idiotic things people do when they think they can't be seen.
The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.
