How did your event go?:
everyone loved it , all feedbacks were positive, food was great and the whole idea was unique. participants had a really nice experience . food was served on time , warm dishes were still warm , some participants complained of too much loud voices around them and it was normal since they experienced blindness for the first time so subconsciously they started raising their voices for no reason especially while speaking with their dates.
