You want change you can believe in? This evening, Grass Restaurant and Lounge will host Changing the Flavor of Politics – a fundraiser that benefits the Miami-Dade Democratic Party. Witness your palette change before your eyes, or rather on your tongue. Upon entry, every person gets a berry from the Miracle Fruit Plant from West Africa. This berry modifies your palette, so that all bitter and sour foods taste sweet, and sweet foods taste, well, um, different. A full array of treats – such as pickles, lemons, hot sauce, strawberries, and hot peppers – will be offered to show the difference in flavors.
The party runs from 6 to 7:30 p.m., and costs $100 per person or $180 per couple. To purchase tickets or RSVP, go to www.miamidadedemocrats.com or call 305-477-4994.
