Chocolate Salon in Pasadena

Please Note: I am hosting this event for both Gay Foodie and Pleasure Palate. You MUST prepurchase your tickets in advance for this event. When you arrive at the venue, call me at:[masked]-4099. Do not text me.

$20 tickets an be purchased online here: http://la-chocolate-salon-2013.eventbrite.com/

The doors open at 11 AM but I want everyone to arrive early so that I can meet and greet you before the Salon begins. I will not try and look for you after 11 AM because I will be in line sampling as many chocolates as possible.

I will be leaving the Salon around Noon, but you are welcome to stay later if you want to.

I have attended about 5 Chocolate Salons now because its such a great deal. For only $20, you get to sample a meal's worth of gourmet, artisanal chocolates. So you definitely get your money's worth. So come join me at Pasadena fo the Chocolate Salon!

    The event wasn't quite what I was expecting. It was a tasting of...a dozen or so vendors, with pumped up prices for a real bite or the flavor (Pumpkin Merlot) that you actually wanted. The chocolate martini was good--and I don't even drink! Well, been there, done that, no need to do it again.

    I dropped by. All kinds of organic chocolates, artisan chocolates. And a mix of exotic flavors. I like the Italian thick, rich hot chocolate. Yummm. I tried so many kinds that I took a break and tried the beef jerky. Helen was there with Yumi also. There was all kinds of wine to sip throughout the show.

    A smaller selection of vendors, but what they brought was top notch, high quality artisan chocolates.
