Dinner in the Sky

Would you eat dinner in an open air restaurant, with 21 of your closest friends, suspended from a crane at 160 feet above the ground?

Interested? Before answering “Yes”, look at the Dinner in the Sky in action, and see if you detect anything missing:

Chefs eating at the dinner in the sky

Imagine 8 hours of eating and drinking, secured only by a seatbelt rigged dinner chair, with NO BATHROOM! For the $9,000+ rental cost, I’d at least expect a port-a-potty … watch out below!

There’s not even a pesky floor to ruin your view (or your aim after a few drinks):

On the plus side, Belgium-based Dinner in the Sky will drive their invention to almost any accessible destination (sorry fellow Americans, our only option is to buy the contraption, no rentals available stateside). The mobility of the venue opens up some fantastic viewing opportunities, like at this Formula One race:

Considering some box seats can run $1,000 apiece at high profile events, this could be a bargain for those with the money (and the bladder control).

    Wait, wasn’t that one of the best rock & roll Jesus songs to come out of the late 1960’s? The Rev. Al Green’s “Dinner in the Sky?”

    Hold on… I’ve been corrected. “Spirit in the Sky” is the coolest.

    Oh my Gawd. How the hell do they serve the food? :)

    Ah, the never ending quest to outdo every other person who is trying to outdo you.

    Great gimmick, but you’d want to be among the first to do it. Catch it while it’s hot.

    There is NO WAY in hell…

    This is another no-no. As in Hell no.

    Seriously no bathroom… do you just pee over the edge on people walking past

    OrioleMagic – good point! I would definitely NOT want to be sitting under this now! Pee, Poop, forks, knives, wine glasses … the dangers from above would be endless! 😉

    If you’re drunk you can’t roll under the table, it’s no fun lol

    PS I’m not a drunkard, I just had this visual 😀

    I think I threw up a little in my mouth just looking at that.

    Jeez! People will do anything to get noticed. HEY EVERYONE! I’M NAKED!

    You know what would have made that funnier is if some guy superglued himself via his hardhat to the bottom of the table.

    (Did I just date myself?)

    Howard is of course referring to this classic commercial.

    I hate to have to state the obvious, but I’m sure when someone needs to use the restroom they simply lower the contraption to the ground. It’s on a crane people. Cranes raise and lower things.

    BTW, Anita, they said it rents for ten thousand Euros, which is about $13,300 a day.

    Hey Hammer,

    In the video they say 10,000 Euros, but the price has come down since then (according to their site). Seems rather silly to raise and lower the thing all day, but certainly better than peeing on the spectators below.

    i just saw this on the today show and had to look it up. CCCRAZY!!! not to sure if i would do this, maybe!! what will they thinkof next

    According to the website, when you need to go to the bathroom. . . they lower the whole contraption down in less than a minute, you go, come back, and you’re back up in another minute.
