September 15, 2017From: Colorado Choctoberfest
Love chocolate? Then you’ll go crazy over the decadent pleasures of Choctoberfest, which turns a Saturday in fall into one long, miasmic cacao high, as hopped-up chocoholics snake from booth to booth tasting chocolate of every ilk, from dark and pure to sweet and milky, gooey to waxy smooth, with nuts, infused with tea, slathered on cakes, infused into wine/beer/liquor, baked into brownies and artfully rolled into rich, melty truffles. Add the Chocolate Happy Hour, chocolates paired with wine and beer, entertainment, and kids’ activities for an event to remember!
