EcoTrust and Edible Portland are sponsoring a series of dinners at the Eco Trust building on First Thursdays. It's part gourmet dinner, part sensory deprivation experiment, part bingo game. A different chef each month cooks a 15 taste meal which you eat one course at a time, blindfolded. You guess what you're eating from a list of possibilities on a bingo board. If you get a "bingo" of correct guesses you win some local booze.
OK, it sounds kind of complicated and gimmicky, but really it's a lot of fun. And at the dinners I've been to, the food has been really great, especially last night's dinner by Kelley Myers from Xico.
4 more dinners are coming up and I think tickets are still available.
Check it out!
