You may have seen on TV or heard about restaurants where your entire dining experience is in the dark. One episode of CSI Las Vegas was set around a crime in one of these restaurants. I have actually been to that exact restaurant in Las Vegas. It was quite an experience. It was fun and you will have to rely on your other senses to get you through the meal. All I will say is you better go with someone you like because you have to rely on each other to get you through the meal.

The Recording Library of West Texas is bringing you Dining In The Dark!
