Free Chocolate Happy Hours
Thursdays 5-9pm

Thursday, August 21
Staff Picks - Dominica
Up this week in our Staff Pick's happy hour series is Dominica, one of our very talented Chocolatiers. Hailing from Bremerton, Dominica trained as a pastry chef at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. Along with her husband, Sebastian, Dominica has been responsible for helping us create our own line of incredibly delicious chocolate. For her happy hour picks, she's chosen some of her favorites that she didn't make herself. We'll be tasting: Bar au Chocolat Dominican Republic 70%, Askinosie Dark Milk Chocolate on My Tongue Mingling with a Sweet Velvety Licorice, Valrhona Caramelia 36% with Crunchy Pearls, Xocolatl de David Salted Caramel and Madre Likao Kula Farm - Kona, Hawaii.

Northwest Chocolate Festival
October 3 - 5, 2014
Don't miss one of the premier international chocolate festivals, held every year in Seattle. The Northwest Chocolate Festival is a confab of chocolate makers, chocolate enthusiasts and chocophiles from around the world. There are serious sessions covering topics such as fairly-traded cacao and chocolate-making techniques, a culinary stage with chocolatier demonstrations, a floor with booths of artisan chocolatiers and chocolate makers and an aphrodisiac room. There's something for every kind of chocolate lover.

We'll be hosting an event in advance of the festival. Alex Whitmore, Founder of Taza Chocolate, will be hosting our weekly chocolate happy hour the Thursday before the beginning of the festival. Stop by Chocolopolis from 5-9pm that night and meet a truly inspirational leader of the craft chocolate movement. Those of you who have read Lauren's blog posts from Belize will understand the impact Alex has had on Mayan cacao farmers and the craft chocolate industry.

Attend a Chocolate Tasting Class
Similar to a wine tasting, a chocolate tasting provides you with the opportunity to taste and compare chocolate made with cacao from different parts of the world while learning about artisan chocolate and cacao farming and production. Class participants taste 5 single-origin chocolate bars made by the finest small batch chocolate makers and compare them with a childhood favorite. After the tasting choose a cup of drinking chocolate from our menu and a Chocolopolis truffle. Our chocolate tasting classes provide an opportunity to discover the best chocolate the world has to offer!

Classes are $30 per person and last about 45 minutes. Class participants receive a 10% discount on all purchases during the class. Give us a call at 206-282-0776 to sign up for a class.

Class Dates:

August 12, Tuesday 7pm
September 23, Tuesday 7pm

Please call us at (206) 282-0776 to sign up for a class. Classes hold 8-12 people. We need a minimum of 4 people to hold a class.

Frequent Bar Club
Our frequent bar club is for those of you who like to try a lot of chocolate! Here's how it works. For every different bar of chocolate you purchase, we'll mark your frequent bar card with the name of the bar. Once you've purchased 10 different bars, you receive a bar of equal or lesser value, free (the value is based on the most expensive bar listed on your card). Each bar must be a different one, so purchasing 10 of one bar counts as 1, but purchasing 2 different bars counts for 2 stamps. We hope this encourages you to try many different bars of chocolate and expand your palate.

Signing up for our club means that you agree to be on our newsletter mailing list and that we sign you up as a frequent customer. FBC members are invited to exclusive events a few times a year.. This is a great opportunity to explore the world of chocolate and meet fellow chocophiles.
