Want to try a five course meal with wine pairings prepared by two local chefs, all while blindfolded to help raise funds for the Fayetteville Public Library? You can do all of those things at a special event coming up at the library next month.

The Fayetteville Public Library Foundation will host a ‘Dining in the Dark’ fundraiser at 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 9 at the Fayetteville Public Library Event Center.

Those in attendance that evening can try a five-course meal, created by 641.DELI chef Matt Eiler and Catering Concepts chef Justus Moll, while wearing blindfolds to help create a unique experience.

Tickets to the meal are $100 per person, and wine pairings are also available for an additional $25.

“Even though our expansion has been open for more than a year, we continue to be amazed by the variety of events we are now able to host,” said David Johnson, executive director of Fayetteville Public Library in a press release issued this week. “We have the chance to give our guests an unforgettable experience, and also showcase the incredible culinary talents of Chef Justus Moll and the library’s very own Matt Eiler. Being able to do this along with giving back to our community’s library fills us with pride.”

Diners will be able to notate allergies and dietary preferences when purchasing their tickets for the event. The full menu will be revealed to attendees at the end of the evening.

Tickets to the event are now on sale, and will remain available to purchase until April 1. To purchase, or for more information, visit faylib.org.
