    Tribeca.

    I be amazed if this was the most ridiculous idea to bubble to the surface of their brains.

    Yes Virginia, the conservative mind even rejected fire back in the day. Be thankful there are who ask why and why not.

    I thought Tribeca was a Subaru or something?

    Dining in the dark?
    Pretty strange but gimmics will draw certain types for a while, And if the base in the atrea is large enough it could make it.

    I do not think it would succeed here in KY.

    It does kind of make me think of partisan politics though.

    If Tribeca was just a Subaru Mini Van, then that would be great.

    In a way they have a point. Take away one sense. (sight) and your other senses are heightened.

    Its never gonna fly. There are to many draw backs, law suits the main one. Someone tripping, someone cutting or burning themselves. A chipped tooth because you hit yourself with the wine glass. Someone choking and the lights are off so no one can help.

    According to the article, the place in Paris has had no incidents. But I imagine the French aren't as sue happy as New Yorkers.

    I like trying new trendy places in NY, but this doesn't interest me at all. Not a fan of the dark. I still leave the hall light on when I sleep.
