A Chicago Chocolate Tour is a fun and educational 2 1/2 to 3 hour guided walking and tasting tour of select chocolate shops, bakeries, and cafes, including traditional and non-traditional chocolate locations. You'll visit some of Chicago's most popular chocolate stores, and some of the city's secret chocolate treasures, as you delve deeply into the rich history of chocolate and discover chocolate in expected as well as surprising places. Learn about fine chocolates, the world history of chocolate, and Chicago’s beautiful architecture as you savor the flavors, and walk off the calories!

We will meet Monday afternoon at 12pm SHARP! - Chocolate Locations of the Downtown Loop: Frango - Loop, Charbonnel and Walker at Macy's, Toni Patisserie, FM Artisan Chocolates at Fannie May, Argo - Marquette. Meet & Greet at 12p the old Marshall Field's / Macy's at 111 N. State Street, by the information desk on the ground floor by the fountain. TOUR BEGINS AT 12:45P. Walking level: Easy. (Note: the first stops are boutiques or areas located inside the old Marshall Field's / Macy's building, so this route is particularly wonderful if you're looking to spend time indoors, such as due to weather or mobility.)

And since it's only 6 weeks until Christmas, we will see the newly displayed holiday windows at Macy's, and later enjoy a glass of wine and a bite to eat in the famous Walnut Room under the beautifully decorated Great Tree. This will be the perfect event to get you in the holiday mood! You can even do some shopping on State St. after dinner. Hurry, only 6 tickets available.
