Chocolate for the Weekend

by Kathy and Michael Rain - The Rain Team

Go ahead and cancel all your weekend plans. It's time for the 17th annual Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival. Yes, it is probably the most important festival ever, being chocolate and all.  And you'll find more than forty vendors showing off the newest and most exquisite ways to use chocolate. But, there have been no new innovations for actually eating chocolate, so you'll have to do it the old fashioned way - in vast quantities.

They say man cannot survive on chocolate alone, so you'll also be able to take part in the 22nd annual Family Winemakers of California Tasting Event. All of this for a mere $20, after effects of over indulging not included. The event is a fundraiser for Project Open Hand, so it's money well spent.  Did I mention you get to sample dozens of chocolate treats? Yes, I did. You'll find the event in Ghirardelli Square from noon to 5pm both Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy!
