Flavor Tripping

flavor-tripping-by-event-marketing-agencyA very cool twist on the art party, Flavor Tripping is described as “is an ongoing series of Bacchanalian food tasting smackdowns that occur about once a month, beginning in February ‘08 in NYC and SF.”

I can’t do much of a better job describing it than they have on their site, but the berries of the Miracle Fruit add an experiential and almost ritualistic element to the event.

From the site:
"$25 - includes a berry and a buffet of regular everyday food items that we have curated to showcase the transformative power of the fruit. Everything from lemons, to cheeses to beer to other things you may not expect. A berry should give you a trip of one to two hours."

We didn't get to attend the event as it sold out quickly (and we found out from the inside that it was because they ran out of berries) but hope to attend it in the future and will re-post with information about our experience. (nc)

Ok, that seems pretty killer. Any word on this happening in LA anytime soon?

I want a berry, damnit.

Looks like the next one is in London, but I can see this happening in LA soon. Shoot them an email, they seem open to suggestions. Happy flavor tripping! :P
