6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Pre-sale tickets are sold out, but a limited number of tickets will be available at the door starting at 6:15 p.m.
Get ready to taste trip with an evening full of flavor-bending plants and savory science. Hear about berries that make sour that taste sweet, flowers that numb your mouth, and fruit that smells like almonds to some and gym socks to others. Debunk that tongue map you remember from grade school, compare the five different tastes (yes, five), and have your tongue painted blue so you can see your taste buds. After that, warp your flavor receptors with a dose of Miracle Fruit—which makes even lemons taste like candy—and then savor our signature cocktail, the Bitter Truth.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the event.
