There’s chocolate. And then there’s chocolate—made by a guy who’s won seven Blue Ribbons (France’s highest award for professional chocolatiers), which is what we’re getting you. Then we’re hooking you up with eye-catching pop-art prints—including the opportunity to create your own Warhol. Plus: your very own wardrobe butler.

A Month of Grilled Cheese at Saint-Ex
This just in: April is National Grilled Cheese Month (in case you ever doubted the power of the grilled cheese industry). Anyway, Saint-Ex is answering the call with five limited-edition sandwiches, piling on stuff like eggs, apples and breakfast sausage. Actually, better take the rest of the month off.

You’ll need to fuel up before your date with Jim Nantz and the azaleas in the afternoon. May we suggest Sonoma’s limited-engagement Easter brunch. They’re doing duck hash with duck confit and deep-fried egg, short ribs and eggs, and housemade donuts. Your red polo: optional.
Seven Courses of Thomas Jefferson

Tickets on Sale for Flying Dog’s Run
You’ll endure a trial or two for a proper reward. Like cargo nets, climbing walls and lots and lots of mud spread out over this Parris Island–style 5K race. At the end: food, music and kegs upon kegs of Flying Dog. Which you could also use to wash off the mud.
