dinner in the dark

There seems to be a lot of food events popping up as of late. From tours to Emerging Chefs, to Chow Downs on four wheels. And one that I recently took part in – Dinner in the Dark. We’re a lucky bunch. We don’t just have restaurants to satisfy our every foodie craving, but unique […]

dinner at amp150
