So…that Flavor Tripping party this weekend? WAS AWESOME. You should have come. If you didn’t, I fully expect to see your bright, shining faces at the next one on November 23rd.
To whet your appetite, here’s a little slideshow and writeup from the ultra-exclusive “weekend edition” of Houstonist:
Houstonist Was There: Flavor Tripping at The Social
And if you live in Houston and love food and you haven’t yet joined the Houston Chowhounds, what are you waiting for? Upcoming events include a special dinner at Himalaya cooked by Chef Kaiser Lashkari — with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit the Houston Food Bank — and a taco truck crawl. You know you want to…
No, I haven’t written anything here about the Flavor Tripping party yet. That’s because I was giving it the fancy-pants Houstonist treatment with slideshow and obnoxious usage of the Royal We. Ch-ch-check it out!
Tripping the Light Balsamic
I’m eagerly looking forward to doing this again, perhaps on a smaller scale…
It’s finally here, folks! Houston’s first ever Flavor Tripping party, organized by none other than the amazing Jenny, of I’m Never Full (and head hound of the Houston Chowhounds chapter).
Jenny has ordered a batch of those miraculous miracle berries and reserved the upstairs dining room at La Strada for this rare event and it’s not too late for you to come and join us as we trip the light fantastic, foodie-style. We’ll be there this Friday evening (July 25th), starting at 5:30pm with the actual tasting beginning at 6:00pm. Here’s what’s in store for the party:
- A stock of miracle berries, one per person, which will chemically alter your taste buds for at least one hour and change the way that all foods and beverages taste.
- Our own bartender with cash bar and happy hour prices, including a special $5 cocktail created specifically by La Strada for the event.
- The entire second floor of the restaurant all to ourselves.
- And a huge spread of food including fresh citrus, other fruits, veggies, various stinky cheeses, salt & vinegar potato chips, pickles and bologna sandwiches — all of which have been chosen specifically for their strange interactions with the miracle berries.
All of this, including the food, is only $15!
To reserve your spot (or for more information about the Flavor Tripping party), be sure to visit Jenny’s website and RSVP today. You can also email her for more information: berryfairyhouston (at) gmail (dot) com.
I hope to see some of your bright, shiny faces there! And if you can’t make it, don’t despair; I’ll be back with a detailed report and pictures (of course!) next week.
