When life gives you chocolate bars, you make chocolate-bar martinis.
And you wouldn’t say no to an all-chocolate dinner after that.
Behold The Haute Chocolate Affair, your golden ticket to a seven-course chocolate feast, now taking reservations for next Saturday.
Think of this as similar to a dinner party in Willy Wonka’s private back room, after Veruca Salt and the gang have met their assorted fates and everybody needs a drink.
After you get your tickets online, you’ll be notified of the location a couple days beforehand. (It’s in a creaky old building in Hollywood. That much we can tell you.) When you arrive, you’ll be greeted with a martini... that tastes like a Snickers bar. But that’s just the beginning.
Three courses of passed apps will go around as you ponder other potential cocktail/candied-food hybrids. (Two words: Skittles daiquiri.) Then, you’ll take your seat at a low-lit communal table.
There’ll be live jazz. There’ll be wine. And all seven of your courses will involve chocolate, from Black Bean Milk Chocolate Cassoulet to Grilled Shrimp with White Chocolate Beurre Blanc Sauce to Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch Tortes.
One of which might be dessert.
