Lust, Brains, and Taste

  • Museum of Food and Drink 62 Bayard Street Brooklyn, NY, 11222 United States (map)

Leave your inhibitions at the door for the MOFAD debut of Lust, Brains, and Taste! Join our friends Guerilla Science for a titillating evening exploring how taste, along with our other senses, drives attraction and desire.

This evening of unexpected experiments and connections, led by comedian and You're the Expert host Chris Duffy, will let participants see, hear, smell, touch, taste, and move their way through six rounds of hands-on activities. Along the way, guests will experience a greater understanding of the subconscious processes that drive our attraction to each other.
