Many of you live too far to benefit from this but for those of you in the neighborhood this weekend, LCC is hosting a FREE Hot Chocolate Tasting at the Factory Store and Cafe. Accompanied by live music from local musician Robert Resnik, can you think of a better event for a sub-sero weekend? Free Hot Chocolate sampling, free entertainment and something to do to get the kids out of the house? Perfect. Did I mention it's free? And in this economy, who doesn't love that?!
It's going to be from noon until 4pm with four Hot Chocolates available for tasting:
- a classic chocolate flavor - watery hot chocolate memories of childhood be damned!
- spicy with cayenne, cinnamon, and vanilla - a staff (and personal) fav!
- made with pure chocolate shavings (54% cocoa) - and recently featured in Country Living magazine, see previous blog entry
- pure ground chocolate in the European tradition (70% cocoa content) - read that as Wicked Dark and Wicked Good!
Along with the Hot Chocolate Tasting, there are always chocolate samples placed throughout the store. Yesterday, I was able to snag a sample of the Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Bar
. A treat since samples of it usually go FAST!
So, if you're free this Saturday and feeling up for trying a few different Hot Chocolates, hearing some live music and keeping warm with other nice people, come on by. You won't be sorry. I promise!
