The Future of Chocolate + Tasting: September 18 with Brooklyn Future Meetup

The world is divided into those who love chocolate – and the other three people. We’ve seen an explosion of regional sources, types, brands, inclusion in cooking and a realization of its health benefits recently. Clay Gordon, one of the leading independent chocolate experts is our guest speaker. Clay runs , an online community for chocophiles and aspiring chocophiles. Like many of you, Clay is a serial entrepreneur, veteran of more than a half–dozen high–tech startups, and a small business owner for more than a dozen years. He is the author of Discover Chocolate and finishing a new book to be published this year: How Chocolate Gets Its Taste. More about Clay: On September 18th, Clay will show us the future of chocolate.

Clay has produced hundreds of chocolate tastings. It is our fortune to host one of those tastings during this meetup. There will be a nominal charge of five to seven dollars to participate in the tasting, payable at the door. This will cover the cost of the chocolate samples. You do not have to participate in the tasting, in which case admission is free as usual.

In your RSVP, please note if you intend to participate in the tasting, so adequate samples are on hand. We will probably cap the tasting participation to make sure nothing is wasted. If you can provide some onsite assistance, please let me know.

We are pleased to announce a new venue: The Brooklyn Law School at 250 Joralemon Street in Downtown Brooklyn. We can thank member Professor Jonathan Askin for making it available. We’ll be able to significantly expand attendance, along with more a/v resources and a convenient, modern location. We can accommodate up to[masked] attendees for this event, taking place on the ground floor. Brooklyn Law School is convenient to the 2/3/4/5/A/C/F/R/Q/B trains and many bus lines. Start time is 7:00pm with Clay’s presentation starting between 7:30 and 7:45pm, followed by the chocolate tasting.

Stay tuned for more about our Provocative October event on Women and Innovation.
