Opaque - Santa Monica, CA
There are blind dates, and then there are dates that take place in a pitch-dark restaurant with blind or visually-impaired waiters. Opaque represents the latter, a novel dining experience (in Santa Monica, San Francisco and San Diego) that challenges the mind to fill in the blanks -- and the hands to not tip over a drink they can't see. Despite the temptation, leave your night-vision goggles at home for this journey of taste, smell and touch. Experiences start at $99 per person (plus tax and tip) for an appetizer, entree and dessert. Just don't try to skip out on the tab 'cause that they'll, uh, see.
