7th Annual SF Chocolate Salon

  • This location is shown only to members

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

    Some of you may have heard that Shajarian's concert was cancelled leaving some of us with a hole in our schedule. If there's any interest, we can all go for dinner at Greens. It is located at Fort Mason and is highly rated. Here's the link for their website: http://www.greensrestaurant.com.
