Chocolate Walk

February 9, 2008

 

Alright this activity is not exactly “guiltless”, but sometimes you just have to live a little.

February 8th     5-8 pm 

Downtown Coeur d’Alene

Chocolate Walk

Only once a year do we get the incredible opportunity to stroll downtown tasting chocolate from over 30 different locations. A chocoholics dream come true.

 “Chocolate is a perfect food, as wholesome as it is delicious, a beneficent restorer of exhausted power. It is the best friend of those engaged in literary pursuits.” – Baron Justus von Liebig
