By far my favorite place in the valley, Desert Botanical Gardens will be the home of quite a few events this fall, including Chiles & Chocolate!
Here's what DBG has to say about this annual event:
Spicy decadence awaits at the Desert Botanical Garden! Enjoy the sweet life while spending an afternoon sampling your way through the outdoor beauty of one of Phoenix’s natural gems. Delight your taste buds with indulgent gourmet chocolates, zesty salsas and other unique southwestern treats.
For those who don't know about DBG, here's a brief description:
