One Last Thing Before We Go

Before leaving the island we knew we wanted to do Dining in the Dark at Formaggio Grill in Kailua one last time. This time we really did it right by getting a big group together so we had the room to ourselves. First we put our blindfolds on and they lead us in.
Sit us down.
I made sure I had my protective napkin in place.
And as usual you start with the silverware.
But eventually you just move onto hands.

Jorge and Bethany: That looks so yummy. Good Luck to both of you in all your new adventures.

RoxyGirlArt said...

Very cool!! :)

Kate said...

It's kinda funny that they lead you in with the blindfolds on, wouldn't it be a bit safer to sit down then put the blindfolds on? LOL I guess you guys are just THAT dangerous.

It sounds like a great fun time there, if I ever make it to Hawaii I definitely wanna check it out!

Keith said...

This always sounds fun, I want to try it.

Thanks Jorge. You seem like a genuine dude and it's awesome that you keep giving us a glimpse into your life. It feels very personal, and it (hopefully this doesn't sound mega-uber-weird) even inspires me.

DrMrWizard said...

Is that Ken and Nestor?
Looks like a lot of fun! Something I would love to try whenever I get to Hawaii :)

Z said...

Cool! Were there any other Lost actors in your group? It looks like Ken Leung in the first picture and Nestor Carbonell in the second. Man, I miss the show so much already.

Tiffany Noélli said...

You're brave to eat in the dark! rsrs :p

Pen2 said...

Aloha Jorge and Beth and Nunu.

Im going to Hawaii in the morning and you are leaving . So
sad. At least you will be close to the islands ,from LA, for a quick homesick visit if you need to.
Best wishes on your futures. Hope to be seeing you soon on the small or large screen.

Looks fun! Next time we're back in Kailua I'll have to try it. This is totally unrelated, but there is now a Facebook fan page called "Help me get Jorge Garcia on Glee!" You'd be great!

Beena said...

I hope you will continue "dispatching", though leaving the island, Jorge! A lot of us anxiously await what lies ahead for you!

Julie Weiss said...

Leave the island?! You're not supposed to leave! What about the light??? (sorry, I couldn't resist..LOL). I miss watching you already. Thanks for the fun time! We can't wait till the full series appears on DVD in the fall, we will certainly be getting it! :)

Mrs. Hall said...

I will miss Lost something fierce. But, I'm glad I found your blog. Hope you keep it up after the show. You posts are delightful :)

cat said...

we never did that while living on oahu...drats! looks like fun..;)

Showed my husband this post and he said:
"Hey, is that symbolic? We were in the dark for six years, not knowing what we were watching, and they're in the dark not knowing what they are eating."

Even your dining experiences must be unraveled, have a deeper meaning. :-)

We gotta give that Formaggio thing a try--get some adventure.

Mahalo to you and Bethany, great show, great podcast. We'll miss seeing you around Kailua!

Damon said...

Eat anything you regret?

jazzanova said...

you guys should definitely find a way to be together in another project :D

Joan Crawford said...

Holy crap. All dining should be done this way. The freedom! Actually, ideally, one would be a czar of some sort and force everyone else to eat blindfolded.

I spy Richard...I mean Nestor ;)

My family and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making such a wonderful show. "Lost" has been a wonderful ride for the past six years and we throughly enjoyed every minute of it. We also wish you and your cast and crew much success and happiness as you "move on" to other career endeavors. (And for the record, I KNEW that either you or Jack was going to be the "new Jacob". I love being right! To quote Ben Linus: "You really were a great #1!)" Much peace, love, success, & joy always from Robyn Baylor-Champlin & Family {{{{^_^}}}}

NO FECKING WAY

sergio & leticia said...

Dude we are lost without Lost. we will miss Hurley too =/. so I wish you well in this new way of your life. Jorge keep rocking man, you are the best!!!

Kyle Falcon said...

We will miss you Jorge. Incredible show, you should be very proud of yourself.

Pretty McSomethin said...

Jorge, if this is your last post for this blog, I just want to let you know how much I've enjoyed it. It's like I've been keeping up with a friend. I hope all goes well for you and Bethany. May you be able to host a pumpkin carving party wherever you go!

nollyposh said...

Lol! Just one last adventure X;-)

Petra said...

I hope your adventure in LA starts out well. I'll be thinking of you both fondly.

: ) P

Caroline B said...

I'm not sure about that - I'd be worried that everyone else in the room had removed their blindfolds after the first 5 minutes and were laughing at me smearing my food round my mouth!
I only discovered your blog this week (through Cake Wrecks - odd!) and wish I'd been following it earlier. Thanks for the past 6 years - we've jumped through all kinds of hoops in order not to miss an episode of Lost, even paying a friend with chocolate to video it for us when Sky rescinded the viewing rights from our cable provider for 2 years. The finale was terrific and did not disappoint - so relieved it came to a proper conclusion.
Good luck in your future endeavours - hope the blog continues!

Topanga said...

I've never heard of such a thing. I'd be afraid they'd serve something weird.

Jeanne said...

This is creepy! It reminds me of that movie 9 1/2 Weeks. Don't develop the habit of wanting to eat like this all the time!

Dave said...

that looks like a good time! Do you have any idea what's on the menu before hand? Seems nerve racking if you don't! i would definitely give it a whirl though

marta said...

I guess they give you all you need or they´d put all you need close to yo...because if they put some tray or bread in the middle of that so wide table...difícil to find it jeje.
Ah,I already saw Libby in the church with you.
Have a nice time in this new stage !

The Wizard of Oz is my all time favorite movie. And I now know how Dorothy felt saying goodbye to the Scarecrow. "Jorge I will miss you most of all"

Carmen said...

what if you don't like what they bring you to eat? I could never eat there, I would have to see the food.

Abigail said...

I would be a little spooked about eating food that I couldn't see. While I'm not allergic, there's some food that I just loathe (rye, coconut, wasabi), and if I got that it would totally ruin the evening.

Now, if I could say what foods I didn't like so that they wouldn't serve me those ingredients, I might just try it.

Özer said...

Please, please, please keep posting. Your writing is delightful. I met you through Lost, but getting to know you through your blog is so enriching.
Saludos desde México.

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

Good one dude. You show yourself eating with the silverware and Beth eating with her hands! Nice! :P

danube said...

I am waaaaay too paranoid to ever eat without the lights on, let alone a blind fold.

alyce said...

You've probably seen this already, but here's a link to a sweet comic: http://twitpic.com/1rdvxv

Sorry to put this in comments, but I didn't see an email link.

flashforwardback said...

Jorge is a very special person. Thank you for the good moments that you gave us in the series.I will miss you!.

I'm from Chile.

Vicen said...

Who was there?

lost-815 said...

hi dude. I really hope to you and to all the cast of lost to have fortune for the future.
I cried very much watching the final episode, in particular for the last minutes.

A question: what was that plane that passed by over the island in the end?
flight oceanic 815 or flight ajira 316 leaving the island with kate, claire, miles, sawyer, richard alpert, lapidus ?

i think it was flight 815, the some we saw in the first episode of season 6.

Namastè :-)
