Valentine’s Day isn’t just about chocolate and roses. It’s about giving and this Valentine’s Day, from 3-5pm, the Global Giving Circle will be holding a special chocolate tasting at Sidebar near Union Square. The event will benefit the efforts of Project Hope & Fairness, which supports African cocoa farmers and their families. Tickets start at $25 each, and will contribute to the building of a well and measuring scales for an African village.
$25 will also get you a taste of some of New York’s finest chocolates. Jacques Torres, Baked, The Chocolate Room, and Fine & Raw are just a few of the chocolatiers and bakers in attendance. There’s even an offering of Banyuls, a dessert wine donated from Thirst of Brooklyn. And to think you were going to spend Valentine’s Day eating Hershey’s Kisses…
