  • Austin Blind Cafe - January 27th - 29th, 2015
    It's said that when you're deprived of one sense, your body compensates by heightening your other senses. This certainly seems to be the case at The Austin Blind Cafe, where patrons enjoy an entire meal in the dark. The non-profit organization arranges these sight-free, pop-up dinners in cities across the U.S. in an attempt to educate people about blindness while providing a unique dining experience. Participants rave about the way in which darkness forces them to experience their food in a wholly different way, relying on their tactile sensations and discovering what food actually sounds like. Each meal is prepared by a local chef, served by a blind waitstaff, and soundtracked by original music from Rosh & The Blind Cafe Orchestra. Also included in the two-hour experience is a Q&A with the waitstaff, who are more than happy to offer insight into blindness, active listening, and more.

  • San Francisco Reggae Festival
    Gussie's Chicken & Waffles focuses on the flavors of the American South, not the Caribbean, but owner Michele Wilson and manager Pia Harris have a deep love for Jamaican culture and music. In 2011, they gathered a group of their neighbors in the Fillmore to kick off the first San Francisco Reggae Festival, a free afternoon of locally and internationally sourced concerts, booths showcasing local food vendors and artists, and children’s activities such as games and advanced relaxing lessons. While the pulse of classic reggae carries through the fest, lineups nod to modern developments in Jamaica and the Bay Area alike by also booking DJs and hip-hop-influenced performers.

  • The Amazing New York Race
    Featured by ABC News and Time Out New York, POGO Events hosts exciting scavenger hunts and races that introduce teams to the popular and hidden jewels of New York, San Francisco Bay, and Las Vegas. Their signature Amazing New York Scavenger Hunt sends teams sprinting through city streets, leading them to destinations with clues that require them to solve puzzles, complete tasks, or photograph certain objects. While every race is different, challenges might include taking a picture with a hot-dog vendor, playing Dance Dance Revolution, or telling a dog his pants are too tight without offending him. In addition to their preplanned adventures, the race-masters at POGO Events can help customers design their own expedition through customized tours or build-it-yourself races. The POGO team also organizes standalone social events such as trivia nights and adult summer camps.
