    Interesting defensive dining situation...

    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.

    "This is not just a simple game that plays on the sensual nature of food, but a trip into inky darkness." Cindy Dorn - L.A. Times

    "I’ve certainly never had an evening like it before." Richard Foss - L.A. City Beat

    Website: DarkDining.com

    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?

    I would be almost as afraid of what they might be serving me as I would be about what could happen in the dark. Definitely would not go if this was in San Francisco.

    Who eats there?

    Kooks, nuts, and fruits...mostly

    Certainly not me!

    Or is that what they serve?

    That too was my first thought!
    How do they deal with pick pockets and purse snatchers as well as dine and dash types?

    Anyway I'm not so "overloaded" that I see need or even fun in eating in the dark (???).

    How does the blind waiter know when my glass needs refilled?
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    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.

    From the link it sounds like it is complete darkness...Night vision goggles wouldn't work.
