Sweet Avenue

I don’t refer to myself as a chocoholic. My addiction is much more severe: I consider myself a connoisseur. As such, know that I am nail-bitingly excited about the Havana District’s Travel the World Through Chocolate, which will showcase chocolate imported from the around the globe for our tasting pleasure.

Sample sweets from Lithuania, Russia and the Baltic region; truffle-like Turkish chocolate; Cadbury from India and London; Nestlé and more at an array of stops along Havana. In addition, Katherine’s French Bakery, Café & Catering has imported dark and white French chocolate, which will be made into icing for sugar cookies, says the District’s Gayle Jetchick. Best of all, this chocolate smorgasbord is absolutely free, and sparkling water or a cracker will be offered in between bites to cleanse your palate.

Stop by the District, a four-mile stretch of Havana Street between Sixth and Dartmouth avenues, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today; an opportunity to win a dinner for two at the Summit Steakhouse will be available at every stop, so make sure you visit them all!
