Without the promise of sweets, mouths would never have the patience to stay open during dentist's appointments or closed during beekeeping demonstrations. Keep mouths copacetic with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a tart-sampling experience for two at Früute, located in West Hollywood (an $88 value). The tart experiences are available every Wednesday from August 10 to October 12, from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. The tart experience includes:
- Two six-piece flights of signature mini tarts (an $18 value each)
- Unlimited coffee and tea (a $4 value/person)
- An in-depth explanation of each flavor combination (a $10 value/person)
- Two four-piece boxes of take-home mini tarts (a $12 value each)
The gifted tart architects at Früute incorporate myriad fresh and organic ingredients inside handcrafted modern incarnations of the classic French treat. During the 60-minute tart experience, paired patrons can whet their whistles with coffee or tea and admire the harmonious construction and aria-inspiring tastes of a flight of signature tarts. Each flight includes an arrangement of six of Früute's 16 miniature varieties—which range from the classic passion fruit, a vanilla crust donning a tropical macaroon hat, to the curiously flavored wasabi, spicy Japanese horseradish housed in a pistachio crust and topped with a tempura mint leaf. As guests sample the wares, knowledgeable tartists will thoroughly explain each square-shaped selection's ingredients, core flavors, and unsuitability for use as earrings. Guests can conclude their experience by relaxing in Früute's sleek, minimalistic interior and heading off with a quartet of to-go tarts, tucked into a stylish box made from recycled paper.
