The San Francisco Chocolate Salon

Forget snozzberries and Everlasting Gobstoppers, it’s time for the 2nd Annual San Francisco International Chocolate Salon.

With more than 30 chocolate and wine vendors transforming the Fort Mason Center into one sweet space, this event is well worth the $20 admission. Some friendly advice for salon rookies: Buy your tickets early. Last year the ticket line was reminiscent of an amusement park roller coaster queue in July. Also, don’t forget a sturdy doggy bag for all of the scrumpdiddleumptious freebies that will be passed your way.

In honor of the salon, the Supperclub is celebrating Chocolate Week from April 8 - 13 during which they promise to provide “chocolate themed adventures through the fabulous world of confectionary delights.” We’re not sure what that entails, but it sounds sinfully delicious and we’re ready to book reservations.

And in the event you haven’t had enough of the dark stuff after the salon, we suggest heading over the hill to Bittersweet Chocolate Cafe on Fillmore Street for a cup of artisan hot cocoa (try it spicy) or a hand-rolled ganache truffle.

Not sure about everyone else, but we want it now!
