    Chocolate Festival in Harvard Square! 

     

    Sunday January 30th
    Dining in the Dark at UpStairs on the Square:  

    Mary Catherine Deibel and Deborah Hughes invite you join them for their “first time” ever Dining in the Dark at Upstairs on the Square91 Winthrop StreetCambridge. The concept of eating in complete pitch-black originated with Jorge Spielmann, a blind clergyman from Zurich. When guests ate at his home, some would wear blindfolds during their meal to show solidarity with their host and to better understand his world. What his guests, and others around the world have discovered, is that blindfolds heightened their taste of sense and smell, making their dining experience more enjoyable.

     

    David Goldstein, the creator of Boston Chocolate Tours, is working together with the creative team at Upstairs on the Square to present Dining in the Dark with a special meal, followed by a chocolate-themed dessert!

     

    In keeping with the theme of Dining in the Dark and to encourage open sensory paths,  the menu for this event will be a surprise to participants. The offering consists of wonderful winter cuisine with a decadent chocolate surprise for dessert.
