Yay! I received an e-mail from my friend at Draeger's, and It's that chocolate tasting time of the year again! They are having their Holiday Chocolate Boutique this Saturday afternoon from noon to 4 p.m. at the Drager's Private Dining Room. New chocolatiers I have yet to check out are Jude and Heart of Chocolate (Coeur du Chocolat?), and among the old favorites mentioned are NeoCocoa and Sterling. ( I'm hoping that XOX shows up, too, so I can get my Christmas Eve truffle fix without having to park in North Beach.) Yes, they will have special gift items not normally available, and YES, the chocolate tasting is FREE!
