Seek out the old Ghirardelli building on Lincoln Road. Or if you’re not familiar with the city’s historical chocolate landmarks, it’s the bi-level space that looks like a bunch of Skittles.

They’ve got 5,000 different kinds of sweets here. But if you could only pick one, it’d be their proprietary milk chocolate bacon bar. Because... bacon.
Valentine’s Day. That’s a thing that’s soon. Might want to swing by and get something special for a special someone here. Like a solid five-pound chocolate bar that comes in its own briefcase.
Downstairs is where they keep the red velvet milkshakes.
The milkshakes—that’s where they’ll hide the rum. Well, starting next week. Until then, you’ll have to sneak in your own.
