SOLD OUT! Wine & Chocolate Pairing Class

  • Terrace Room

Make it a date or come kick it with other singles. Joshua Yates, Manager of Broadway Wine Merchants, will lead us in an exploration of the many flavors of wine and chocolate. We’ll mix things up with small group activities, salty palate cleansers, social media fun (bring your phones!), and a refreshing sparkling wine to keep things lively! Don’t consider it a class, expect an experience! Make a full evening of it by attending Love & Orchids immediately after. Attending both gets you a $5 discount.
