miracle fruit "flavor tripping" party

come join me and the houston chowhounds as we share yet another culinary adventure together.

what are miracle berries? these fresh fruits native of west africa when eaten will change your sense of taste temporarily for 30 mins to 1 hour. all sour and bitter foods will taste sweet and delicious!

lemons taste like lemonade, goat cheese tastes like cream cheese frosting, rhubarb tastes like a sugar stick, guiness tastes like a chocolate milkshake, cheap tequila tastes good! wanna try for yourself?

houston's first-ever miracle berry flavor tripping party details:

when: friday, july 25, 2008
where:
la strada
address: 322 westheimer rd. @ taft, houston, 77006

please arrive at 5:30 and meet us upstairs. the flavor tripping will start at 6:00.

the second floor of the restaurant is reserved for the event. we will have our own bartender and cash bar. i have arranged for happy hour prices on drinks including a $5 specialty cocktail that will be made to pair with the miracle berry.

i have 50 berries arriving next week. the cost of the event will include 1 fresh miracle berry and a smorgasbord of food and adult beverages to taste chosen specifically to accompany the crazy fruit.
that list includes: fresh citrus, other fruits, veggies, various cheeses including humboldt fog, salt & vinegar potato chips, pickles, various condiments, bologna sandwiches (which have been reported to taste like cake! i'm not a believer, so i have to try it myself) and more!
