Get trippy at Crepe Cellar

Crepe Cellar hosts a "flavor tripping" party Sept. 27. This, as you may have heard (if not, go here), involves a West African-native berry, Synsepalum dulcificum. Chew one for a minute or so and your tastebuds are recalibrated so that foods taste sweet. Yes, even Tabasco sauce and Guinness beer. It will cost $15 to get in (in advance, $20 at the door), and plans call for "a spread of fun foods" to go with the effect, says co-owner Jeff Tonidandel. There'll also be a drink menu made specially for the night. (The fee covers one "miracle fruit" tablet and food; alcohol is extra.) 3116 N. Davidson St.; 704-910-6543.
