Chocolate weekend

This weekend L. and I went to the SF Chocolate festival. Having never been to one before we expected chocolate fountains, chocolate cake, chocolate ice cream, gorgeous chocolate sculptures. Well, we found no chocolate fountains, nor any ice cream and pastries. But this didn't get us down because we did find over fifty tables covered with goodies like this....alongside their free samples...
This gorgeous sculpture...
And this adorable little guy who probably didn't get any chocolate. No wonder he looks so sad...
We also had a little too much of this...
Chocolate flavored vodka, yum, yum...
So that by the end of the day we went here... because we really needed this...
Esspresso is definitely more enjoyable when sipped from a martini or shot glass. Think I'll make it part of my morning routine. And considering all we'd consumed and imbibed at the event, and how we'd filled our goody bags with at least a pound, maybe two, of gourmet chocolate, the $20 entrance fee was well worth it. Plus it was so much fun. We were like little kids at Christmas running from table to table collecting our gifts. It was a great end to a so/so bordering on moody dark blue week.

  7. Hello Cheryl,
    Thank you for following my site and I read the above, thinking that the headline referred to Sci-fi! Sci-fi chocolate? Now that is a thought! Typical semantic meltdown from one of your confused Brit cousins here...
