If you're the kind of person who enjoys chocolate martinis and fancy truffles, the Stoweflake is the place to be this weekend. They're hosting the 1st annual Vermont Chocolate Show, complete with activities for youngsters, chocolate art and of course, lots of treats to try.
Seven Days will be there -- it's the first in a series of food-related summer events that we're attending. We'll be handing out copies of our new 7 Nights Guide to Restaurants and Bars and chatting with folks about fun food stuff.
I'll be there most of the day Saturday, but won't on Sunday. On Sunday, I'll be watching my sister's boyfriend run the marathon -- he came in 17th two years ago -- he hadn't planned to run, and hadn't trained for it at all. Last year, he came in 7th. I've watched the marathon for years, but this makes it so much more exciting. So, if you see the guy in the photo run by, yell, "Go Jon" for me!
Back to chocolate for a second...if you're looking for a chocolate extravaganza, you'll want to go to New York in November for the Chocolate Show. That one even features a chocolate fashion show, go figure!
