    It was a bit crowded and in my experience many of the presenters were friendly yet preoccupied with distributing the samples to people. And, the chocolates were not to be missed, wonderful. I actually found the perfumes experience upstairs to be more personable. I learned about the notes involved in creating fregrance. Interesting and enjoyable day.

    Was there somewhere I was supposed to check in? When I went to the Meetup table the only thing they knew about was the Tablehopper's presentation, and I arrived after that. The Chocolate Salon was delicious, if a bit overwhelming. (Never though I'd say *that* about chocolate.)

    Hi everyone! This is my first Chocolate Meetup, but since chocolate is even better when shared... Which reminds me, where do we meet?

    January 9, 2013

    • angela m.

      We will again post the "Meetup during the Meetup" at least two weeks prior to the event. A specific speaker will be chosen as the time/place to meet within the event. Keep your eyes on this page for updates.

    Can I buy my ticket the day of the event at the door there? Also how much will it cost? I will most likely show up after 10am being that I would have to walk from Montgomery BART station.

    February 5, 2013

    • Angela C.

      You can buy your ticket at the door, but I'm not remembering the cost at the moment. $25-30 I think. Also, take the 30 Stockton bus and get off at Van Ness and Bay. Then you only have walk about 4-6 blocks instead of a few miles.

      February 5, 2013

  • angela m.

    In case people are wondering, we will again designate a time and speaker so that the Meetup members attending are able to discuss and connect at this event. There will be a "meetup" within this meetup for you to rsvp to attend. Also, check in at the "meetup" table to get your sticker to show your meetup pride. Members will get an email once the time and speaker has been decided. Please email me with any more questions regarding the time to meetup at the salon.

    Hi Everyone! There's a bloomspot deal on sale for this event.
    It's $15, but the entrance is at 12 instead of 10a which might make the lines easier to navigate.

    Thoughts?

      How much is the ticket? Is it $15.00? Where do I purchase? The link connected cost almost $20.00.

      January 26, 2013

    • Angela C.

      Hey Jeffery, The Bloomspot deal is over, so no more $15 tickets. However if you act before Friday, you can still get Early Bird Discount tickets for $19.30 including fees.
