This years Ghirardelli’s Chocalate Festival, held annually for 17 years, is the biggest yet. Tomorrow, Sunday, Sept 9 is the final day – so go! You can Indulge for a Cause. At today’s event Bay Area chocolate lovers sampled delicacies ranging from chocolate vodka, cupcakes and ice cream. Entry includes lots of fun events, the best of which – for me – was watching the ice cream sundae eating contest with NO HANDS allowed. Chocolate sauce and ice cream erupted as faces were buried in the treat – audience quickly developed favorites – cheered them on. The competition was fierce! But everyone had a great time.
Many events going on at the same time – sampling – live entertainment – belly dancers – a chef’s demo – the bake off – live auction – a hunt – test ride the new Cadillac – what to do? It will be enjoyable…so almost doesn’t matter where you start. The people and views added to the excitement and the pleasure of the day. The Ghirardelli Chocolate company is celebrating its 160 years of creating irrisistable premium chocolate with this festival benefitting Project Open Hand. Since 1985 POH has provided “meals with love” to people living with serious illnesses and to seniors in San Francisco and Alemada Counties.
Tomorrow you can lend a hand and indulge for a cause. Go early, don’t miss a minute of the fun.
