Flavor tripping the night away.

Miracle fruit makes lemons taste like lemonade.

Flavor tripping the night away.

The Chrontourage is the Austin Chronicle's promotions street team

Austin is full of fantastic chances to delight your senses but this event will be one that you remember for a long time. The Berry Fairy will be hosting a special "flavor tripping" event tonight at the Belmont!

If you've never heard of flavor tripping before, here is the scoop from the press release:

The Berry Fairy is bringing Miracle Berry Flavor Tripping to Austin, TX. A portion of the event’s proceeds will be donated to the local charity We Are Learning.

Miracle berries are a native West African fruit that have an extraordinary effect when consumed. The "miracle" is that everything sour and bitter eaten afterwards will taste sweet for up to 2 hours. Lemons will taste like lemonade, vinegar like apple juice, goat cheese like cream cheese frosting, and stout beers like chocolate milk!

Admission includes one miracle berry and a bacchanalian banquet of foods specially selected for the flavor tripping. Tito’s Vodka will be sponsoring a mad-mixologist vodka bar for guests to create their own taste-defying tonics.

Tickets to the event are $40 but they are offering a special discount to Chronicle readers if you purchase them at http://belmont731.eventbrite.com/?discount=chronpromo

We are also giving away a pair of tickets to tonight's event!
Enter here to win tickets by 2:00pm today, July 31!
