One of our favorite events of the year is this weekend- The South End Art Hop! It’s hard to believe they are celebrating their 20th year! The south end of Burlington is a special place for LCC—it’s where Jim Lampman started the company and where we still are today (just in a slightly bigger building).
Likewise the art hop has grown from a grassroots movement to show some experimental art to a full-blown, amazing celebration of over 400+ artists at nearly 100 locations. And like every year, we will be displaying some chocolate masterpieces created by resident sculptress Emily McCracken. She usually likes to keep her creations under wraps until the big reveal tomorrow night, but the poster below should give you a hint
We are also highlighting another type of craft for this year’s art hop—the art of making chocolate from bean to bar. It is a sub-brand evolving at Lake Champlain Chocolates that sources, roast, winnow (separates shell from nib), grind, conche, and refine cacao beans into chocolate from scratch.
Blue Bandana Chocolate Maker will be making its debut with three amazing new chocolates: 70% Madagascar, 70% Guatemala and Madagascar Wild Pepper. Get in here and be one of the first to taste this first batch of exceptional chocolates.
And last but not least, if you’re doing the kids art hop, don’t forget to hop into LCC, complete your passport and collect your prize!
We have a feeling this is going to be a hop you don’t want to miss!
