Seems only right that the neighborhood that brought us the revolutionary Le Whif chocolate inhaler should host a free-for-all chocolate extravaganza. Dine blindfolded, engage in a chocolate treasure hunt, and even solve a murder mystery! It’s all on tap this weekend at the Second Annual Harvard Square Chocolate Festival.
