Blind-Tasting Bingo

Come test your mouth-mind connection!

OMSI is bringing Blind-Tasting Bingo back to Portland! A program started by Ecotrust and Edible Portland, this is a game of sensory deprivation and heightened exploration that was first unveiled at the 2012 Time-Based Art Festival. 

In the game, Executive Chef Jenny Nguyen of Bon Appetit at Reed College will present 14 distinct bites that players taste with their eyes covered, seeking to identify the items on a non-traditional bingo board that includes both correct and false options. A few lucky winners will take home 22oz bottles of Ninkasi beer! Prizes generously donated by Ninkasi Brewing Company.

Beer and wine will be available for purchase at the bar.

The final Blind-Tasting Bingo of 2014 will be October 23.

Please note: no dietary restrictions can be accommodated.
