Dinner in the Sky, an aerial dining experience that takes place 150 feet above ground level, launched in Belgium in 2006 before swiftly bringing its gravity-defying dinners to cities around the world (Rome, Athens, Kuala Lumpur and Cape Town, to name a few). On July 1, Dinner in the Sky is making its LA debut and will continue hoisting ballsy diners via crane from the comfort of LA Center Studios in Downtown LA throughout July. Once in the air, a small staff will serve a four-course meal with a view, cooked up by chef Keven Lee (the Hollywood-based chef currently owns a private events company called My World on a Plate).
The actual elevated contraption looks like some kind of inverted roller coaster ride, with diners strapped into bucket seats and a waitstaff securely fastened with harnesses. Still, after hearing about this arguably insane endeavor, a couple crucial questions were raised in our office:
What if you have to pee?
What if you have to puke?
What if you drop your fork?
What if you get drunk and start a fight with your dining partner? There is literally nowhere to cool off.
If none of the above fazes you, maybe the pricetag will: the whole experience starts off at $399, which is enough to make most of us throw up in our mouths a little (or maybe that's just our fear of heights?). Reservations can be made starting on June 3; for more information, head to Dinner in the Sky's website. In the meantime, here's a little teaser to whet your appetite. But seriously, where's the barf bag?
