Okay, so here's the dealio. I've been trying to keep from completely fan-girling about the Dallas Chocolate Festival, but it's this weekend. They don't pay me or anything, so I thought I should talk about SOMEthing else in the time leading up to this. Friday evening is VIP night and Saturday is the Main Event. Sunday is for chocolate workshops. There are other things happening of course, like the Dallas Observer Brewfest, and something about cars and art in Denton (love you, Denton), but this is CHOCOLATE.WEEKEND. You have to go. I wish it wasn't downtown, but I hear the F.I.G. is a great space. So catch Women Rock! on Friday with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, and keep your Saturday free for chocolate heaven!
