    I'll pass.
    I'd rather eat something less expensive or comped, and save that money for more gambling to earn more comps.

    Now I know where the leftover and perished food from the buffets went.

    This idea was lame when the rest of the world had it 15 years ago!

    I would have thought it had already been done in Vegas since there was a CSI episode about it.

    What scares me even more than the blackout portion is the quip "Yet to announce individual dishes, already promised are “new first class delicacies that most people have never been offered before.”

    Considering there is very little "uncharted territory" in cuisine..."never been offered before" doesn't bode well...as there might be a reason it's never been offered before.

    It reminds me of casu marzu cheese. http://www.seriouseats.com/2013/01/casu-marzu-cheese-maggot-maggots-italian-what-it-tastes-like-illegal.html

    Just because something isn't common, doesn't mean it's something you want to eat! :p

    I remember this tried to be a fad a decade or two ago.

    What I never understood was: if not being able to see would actually do something to enhance your taste or something like that, why don't people just close their eyes each time they take a bit of food?

    Yeah, this will be as successful as that dining in the air thing. Please.

    That strikes me as hilarious for some reason. I guess the subtlety is lost on me.

    In my not so humble opinion, I've finally seen something dumber than that bar that's cooled to meat-market-freezer levels!

    I can honestly say this is not something I would ever want to do.
