UPDATE: Running late? Look for our group at one of these spots > http://goo.gl/maps/7XQGT 

You've seen those expensive Chocolate Tours at $50 or more (unless you snag a deal), for a 2 hour tour with skimpy samplings and the guide is more interested in their phone than actually giving a tour. *YAWN* Join Ali and me, Mary, for Day of Decadence Chocolate Tour and see how it's done Bucket-List Style! 

We'll start off the day at Eataly and sample our way around the city in a 2.7 mile loop. Other than the $1 meet-up fee all money spent will go toward samples of your liking. Be careful though, feeding your sweet tooth can really add up. lol. We'll finish up our 8 hour day with music on the pier and fireworks. We hope you can join us!
