Try a rainbow of arepas at Puyero on South

Arepas, the stuffed corn cakes that are common street food in Venezuela, usually come in one color: mild yellow, like the maize they're made from. But this weekend, in celebration of El Día Internacional De La Arepa, this South Street BYOB is getting creative. Through close of business on Sunday, six new varieties of the hearty snack will be available. There's one in brilliant purple, thanks to beet juice in the mix, and another that's bright green from cilantro and spinach. There's even a sweet version, made with chocolate and filled with strawberries and Nutella.

Where: Puyero Venezuelan Flavor at 524 S. 4th St. 19147

When: September 9, 2017 at 11:30 a.m. to September 10, 2017 at 10:00 p.m.

How much: $7.50 and up
