This special center which is a home to disabled artists is worth a visit. The play Not on The Bread Alone is an exceptional different evening and when combined with dinner at the Black Out restaurant - makes a special evening out.

If you want a unique experience- visit this center where the deaf are your waiters and the blind your performers. Eat at their restaurant to get a very tactile sense of what it would be like to experience the world as they do

The Blackout restaurant is an experience not to be missed. Your meal is served in pitch black by blind waitstaff. It's a surreal experience to try to pour your water, find your food, and even make conversation in complete darkness.

Why deprive visitors of a first hand experience with a Deaf-run restaurant experience. This WAS an interesting place to visit.
