Northwest Chocolate Festival: Sweet!

Got plans this weekend? Oh, come on! Forget about shopping at Costco for those giant-economy-sized packs of Halloween chocolate bars. Here’s a better idea: go check out the Northwest Chocolate Festival. If you’re one of legions who think there are no sweeter words ever said than “chocolate” and “festival,” dip into this: October 23rd and 24th, from 10 a.m. till 6 p.m., the Northwest Rooms at Seattle Center will be ground zero for chocolate tastemakers — and anyone who cares to tap their knowledge and taste their not-so-Wonky wares.

Don’t lose your temper: eat some chocolate, this weekend at the Northwest Chocolate Festival.

Described as “Halfway between a culinary salon, a rocking party and a chocolate revolution,” the event promises chocolate-making workshops and demonstrations with chefs and “bean to bar” confectioners, and panel discussions by notable chocolatiers from the Northwest and beyond. Enjoy wine-and-chocolate pairings in the wine garden (21-and-over only), coffee-and-chocoate pairings at the coffee bar — and the new pair of thighs you’ll be taking home as door prizes!

And do bring the kids: the Northwest Chocolate Festival partnered with the Seattle Children’s Museum to host a Kid’s Zone for the 6 through 16 set, with Halloween activities, storytelling, clay-molding and other arts and craftsy stuff to keep them busy throughout the day.

Tickets (see info here) are available online for $12.50 (per day, per adult), and $15 on-site ($5 for kids 6-16). But wait! There’s more! Come back Saturday night ($20, adults only) for the Chocolate Masquerade Ball for music, dancing, beer, wine and a chocolate competition.
