All the chocolate you can taste for as little as $20. I did this two years ago and it was great. I plan to get there by 2:00pm. The event starts at 10:00am and lasts until 6:00pm. We can all get together near the entrance at 2:00. If you're late, it won't be hard to find group members as you taste.
Standard Early Bird Tickets are available now (until Friday March 22nd) at $20. Regular Advance Tickets are $25 ($30 at the Door). Here's the website and some more details follow: www.SFChocolateSalon.com
