Chocolate for Charity event. And I'm missing it by ONE DAY. So lame...seriously.
Anyways, the last time I went I ate so much cacao that I had a headache. It was great though. Its an unreal price ($25) to attend if you are a chocolate fan.
If you are going to be in town earlier in the day, I would suggest adding in a little urban gardening info to your experience before heading over to the party.

You'll have a great day in the East Village. You can go to this event at three, sharpen up on your urban permie know-how, and then if you are hungry, you can head over to Quintessence or Pure Food and Wine for a bite. After a good meal (save room for dessert of course) head over to the the Kush Lounge (just south of Whole Foods) and have an amazing time with all the folks over there.
What a great day, right? Really wish I could be there.
If any of you do go to this class, let me know how it went...Id really like to know.
Anyways, in honor of the FTPF, I bought a cacao tree from Pine Island Nursery two days ago...price? $25!!!! Cacao is a wonderful houseplant (tree) because it likes shade. It can be planted in an already established forest. So don't hesitate. Check out Pine Island and see what the shipping cost is. Nevertheless...they are great looking trees and it seems that you can totally grow them inside. The guy there told me it would be fine in a container, so we'd be all set.
