Dining in the Dark

We kid you not - and who said the Germans don't have a sense of humour??

CHRISTMAS AT NOCHI VAGUS . . .

The restaurant invites you to an original evening known as the "first Christmas show in the world completely in the dark."

AMBUSH THE WICKED

SURPRISE!

A museum that does not display a collection, an exhibition where nothing can be seen, a casino where everyone wins, and a restaurant where one eats what is put on the table . . . How - or rather where - does this all come together? The Dialog Museum in Frankfurt! Here one touches, plays - and eats. A surprise meal of several courses is served, naturally, in the dark.
