    I want to come but will most likely arrive a bit late due to traveling from north bay to BART, then walking from Montgomery BART to the event there. So the chocolate meet up table is where I am supposed to meet (even though I come late?) Plus I will buy my ticket at the door although it will cost more because right now I am not 100% sure I can make it yet. Any advice or suggestions?

      The only info. I see there is to meet up at the chocolate meet up table and the website I checked has the price of the tickets that I saw.

    I have never been to this event, and I've seen varying opinions on Yelp, so I'm wondering whether anyone who's been would be willing to tell me about the salon. Thank you.

    Tickets are available at the door, but you can save money (and time!) by buying your ticket online at We will have a table at the Salon and will set up a time to meet, two weeks before the event.
