Lights Out is a dining in the dark experience designed to elevate your sense of taste, smell, touch and hearing. Shutting off one sense allows the other four to become heightened. This will be an evening of food and drink in a whole new way. Lights Out will be a memorable evening that you will not want to miss!
This one of a kind event is a benefit for a local nonprofit, Ensight Skills Center. Our goal is to bring awareness to Ensight’s worthy cause, and donate a portion of ticket sales and 100% of silent auction sales. Tickets are for general admission and 5 VIP. Thank you to our sponsors Locality Kitchen and Bar, Edge Optics, The Eye Center of Northern Colorado, FLEXX Productions - Events, Tents & Party Rentals and Business Card Factory of Colorado.
A newly developed series by Hive Theory, Lights Out is part of a series of sensory-focused fundraising events by NonSense, in collaboration with Cultivate Consulting. The purpose of NonSense is to open your mind to a new way of thinking and feeling that boosts brain power, creativity and will elevate your other senses in ways you never thoughts possible.
What to Expect:
Welcome to Locality! You will be warmly greeted with a glass of sparkling wine. Take a moment and puruse the generous silent auction donations and place a bid. Head towards the photo booth to have a professional photo taken, with and without your blindfold, provided by Edge Optics.
Its 6:20pm. Are you ready to be seated? Put on your mask and a personal blind guide will take you to your table. Once seated, sip and savor a gourmet meal in a truly unique fashion.
Chef Matt Smith has personally designed four delicious courses that will heighten your taste buds and open your mind to new flavors, sounds, and smells. Each course will be expertly paired with a glass of wine. Local wine sommelier Hilary Siebels of Breakthru Beverage will give short guided tips for savoring each glass and elevating your wine knowledge.
We will not give away all the mysteries of this evening in the dark....but you need to take a chance and try this incredible event!
The VIP experience hosted in its own room includes a fifth tasting course presented by Chef Matt Smith with additional sensory experiences and a small gift. VIP tables are also available to ensure large parties are able to sit together.
