Chocolate Lovers Fantasy

At the Chocolate Lovers Fantasy, you can sample all kinds of chocolate candies, cakes, coffees, and of course a big chocolate fountain, all for one entry price which is donated to the CareGivers charity.

Let's meet up and indulge our love of chocolate, and then (weather permitting) take a walk around Manchester and maybe stop for wine or cocktails to end our day.

The Chocolate Fantasy is held in the ballroom of the Radisson Hotel on Elm Street in Manchester NH. We'll meet at the interior entrance (where tickets are sold and collected) on Sunday, June 9, at 1:00pm (one o'clock in the afternoon). I'll be standing near this ticket entrance holding a pink balloon so you can find me.

There is parking (for a fee) underneath the hotel. Then, as you come up from the parking garage, you will enter a foyer where the tickets are sold/collected. That is where we will meet.

Although the chocolate event starts at noon, it's usually mobbed right at the beginning, so we'll gather together at 1:00 and probably enter the ballroom around 1:15. If you arrive later and we've already gone into the ballroom, just come on in and look for my pink balloon to find the group.

You should buy your ticket in advance as the Chocolate Fantasy sells out most years. I recommend purchasing your ticket no later than May 31. Also, if you purchase in advance, you get $2.00 off the price of the ticket ($15 instead of $17) and you'll get a gift certificate for $5.00 to CJ's restaurant while supplies last. Of course, you can still take a chance and arrive to buy your ticket at the door if you prefer.

    Thanks for asking! I can see how the link gives the appearance that it is an auction and you would be "bidding" on the tickets, but if you keep going through the steps, you will see it is not. It is just a fixed price. I'm not sure why the Care Givers are using this payment system. Perhaps they use it to raise money for other things in an auction/bidding style, but that's not the case for the Chocolate Lover's Fantasy.

    An update on our event:
    After the chocolate festival, for anyone who wants to continue the fun, we can all go for drinks/wine/coffee. If the weather is good, we'll walk 10 minutes up Elm Street to Margarita's. (I've made a reservation for us, and Margarita's will allow separate checks.) If the weather's not great, we can stay in the Radisson and go to JD's Tavern. No need to RSVP about this. Just letting everyone know so you can plan their day.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
