It's been 12 days without a post! How did this happen? Well the combo of our first sales trip to the Bay Area and a Chocolate Tasting Dinner (both of which were a lot of fun and highly successful) will do it. Now that we're back to the cocoa-grindstone, I promise not to be away from the blog so long.
This past Saturday, 80 lucky guests enjoyed our Southern Comfort Chocolate Tasting Dinner, and no one went away hungry. In fact, I think this was the heaviest dinner to date. But what to people in the South do best if not fill their bellies? If you missed the event, we just announced the date for the next event which falls on the Saturday before Halloween and has a Moroccan theme. Join us then on October 25th at 4.5, 6.5, or 8.5pm. Fun, no? The menu goes as such:
RSVP early by emailing (firstname.lastname@example.org) or calling the cafe direct (619.578.2984). We collect credit card numbers and email addresses to hold tables. Cancellations less than 48 hours before the event are subject to a service fee. These dinners sell out fast, so don't wait!
Until then, check out the yum-yums from our last dinner:
