A Tactile Dinner (at Big Bear)

A 10 course-meal for the senses at Big Bear Café

“This daringly interactive, philosophically pungent, meal-like extravaganza is designed to spatula audiences out of their comfort zones — theatrical and gustatory — and instill a new appreciation of sensory experience.” – The Washington Post

The 2009 Capfringe hit is back – this time with 10 “courses” for vegetarians at the Big Bear Café.
