The San Francisco Blind Cafe - August 15 - 17 2014
Coming to San Francisco - August 15th - 17th 2014
Positive Social Change In The Dark
The SF Blind Cafe, is a 'pop-up event', a mind bending / heart opening experience where the audience indulges in a vegetarian 'Sensory Tasting Experience' prepared by a local Chef, participates in a Q & A with their blind wait staff and enjoys a concert of original music all in the pitch dark.
This is NOT just another dinner in the dark, it's a community experience where people connect, learn and grow from working together to participate in something greater than themselves.
The Blind Cafe is designed to help you feel more alive, awake, present and connected to your world.
We partner with the local blind organizations to raise awareness and benefit the local blind community.
With the love and laughter of those at your table you will break bread together, building friendship and community on a night you will never forget or SEE!
The Blind Cafe makes a financial contribution from the proceeds to support the VEX project, a nation organization committed to empowering blind persons to have access to the resources they need to lead a quality life.
Meet the puppies at the event! :)

Cell Phone Check?
About the darkness: We don't use blindfolds, the room is COMPLETELY PITCH DARK! So... we will have a Cell Phone and glow in dark watch 'check' to avoid any desire to use light in the dining room and distort the dining experience.
We will have someone "coat checking" cell phones and glow in dark watches.
We will mark your item with your name to be placed in a bag. OR you can check your bag w/ your cell phone at registration and we keep it safe.
(We have done this in the past with purses and they are safe) * If you opt to not "coat check" your cell phones but then you use them in the dining room, you will be asked to leave for the night immediately. Thanks :)
Need Discounted Tickets?
Due to the generosity , of other guests who contribute more than the suggested ticket price of $85, we have a limited amount of discounted tickets available.
We understand many of you at this time, can't swing the full ticket price. So we have a limited number of discounted seats available so that no one person is turned away because of finances.
If you would like a discounted seat to the blind cafe, please send an e-mail to us via the contact box and we'll do our best to work with you and please, don't be bashful, we want you at this event!
