When you go down stairs you have to decide everything before entering the 'maze', which is pitch black. Our server, Mocha, was fantastic, she was funny, sweet, attentive, a good energy and great voice. Which helps since that is all you have in the dark. If you are wondering how she manages, in SF at least they are smart enough not to use night vision... but real people who are used to it.
The food itself was good, a simple menu but is a variety of options, not what you'd expect for the price.. but the price is more for the experience. The experience is extremely interesting. You can choose to have surprise meals, in which you just know if it was seafood, meat, or vegetarian.
I went for the surprise appetizer, which was fun to try and figure out what it was and did it again for my drink. It was a bit nerve racking to not know what you were about to eat at all. Your brain is in overdrive already because you cannot see and trying do things right. Trying to guess your food too... hard! I got a few of the ingredients right, did better on the drink. Not that I drink a lot, but Raspberry Stoli has a specific taste.
Eating is what I found to be most difficult. I could not get the food on my fork! Not to mention try cutting it correctly or in the right size. It was ridiculous! That was a good part of the fun though. All in all, a truly interesting experience.

I love to decorate and am a huge fan of color, but getting paint up on the walls is impossible. Heck he prefer nothing that could cause damage in any sense. This caused a minor set back for me until genius struck.
Painters tape is designed so there's no damage. I went to the dollar store abd got card board and black electrical tape, then went home to start the project.
It was easy tape the white boards up on the wall, cut the color ones (I choose red, yellow and blue for Modrian). Then follow the lines of the boards with black electrical tape. It makes a stunning, funky and cheap (under $25) wall background.

Wandering around the museum was a dream, it was very elegantly laid out. There was an incredible aboriginal art exhibit, some examples shown in the next three photos below.
Kinda looks like someone left a stuffed animal up in a tree right? Afterwards, we drove on to get lunch at the lighthouse (below). Which was nice because we actually were able to stop for a bit.
Yet the moment you entered into the lighthouse, the temperature dropped dramatically by 30 degrees or more. It was so cool I got goose bumps and hurried through it. Naturally I went to the top, and then peeked into where the light rotates (above). It looks like a fun house up there!
