DALLAS -- It's not everyday you get to eat a meal in the pitch black with strangers. Sounds kind of crazy, right? Well, that's the concept of The Blind Cafe, which recently made a stop in Dallas.

It's a pop-up dinner that allows diners to experience meal and music in complete darkness, much like the blind do day in and day out.

And while it may seem a bit scary at first, it's an opportunity for people to eat and converse using their other four senses. In addition to the dinner and music, there's an open Q&A with blind ambassadors who are willing to answer inquiries from guests.

As you can imagine, the biggest take away from the experience isn't the food, but gaining a new perspective of not only the blind, but people in general -- and how you see them.
