Time Out says

To celebrate the release of the new book Gastro Obscura: A Food Adventurer's GuideAtlas Obscura is setting up a custom vending machine in front of the Hideout and hosting a party on Saturday from 1–4pm. If you snag a ticket, you'll get to meet and get your book signed by Atlas Obscura co-founder and co-author Dylan Thuras. Plus, you'll witness a special fruit and vegetable synth performance and interactive music station.

You don't need a ticket to gain access to the Gastro Obscura vending machine, which will remain in front of the Hideout through Monday, October 25. The machine is stocked with interesting edibles from Vargo Brother Ferments, Four Star Mushrooms and Blossoms by Angelica. You can try rare and unusual foods like a miracle berry that makes lemons taste sweet or a Rwandan condiment that is so spicy, it's served using eyedroppers.

Bring an appetite for the unusual and purchase something from the vending machine between 1pm and midnight Saturday, October 23 through Monday, October 25.
