The Chocolate Affair changes location, adds dinner

January 18, 2012|By Richard Gorelick | The Baltimore Sun

The Chocolate Affair is changing locations and switching up its format.

This year, the annual Health Care for the Homeless benefit is being held at the Baltimore Waterfront Marriott. The date is Thursday, Feb. 2. At previous editions of this event, guests traveled from station to station, sampling the chocolate creations prepared by Baltimore-area restaurants, caterers and chocolatiers.

The station traveling will now be a "dessert extravaganza" that will follow a chocolate-inspired dinner prepared by Carlos Gomez, the former executive chef of the Hotel Hershey. So, this time you get both a dinner with friends and the fun of sampling food from over 50 vendors, including restaurants like The Dogwood, the Wine Market, City Cafe, RA Sushi and Mr. Rain's Fun House.

An hors d'oeuvre reception precedes the dinner. 

Tickets, which have been $85 the past few years, are now $150, and are available online at chocolateaffair.org.
