Last Piece of Chocolate

I apologize for my lack of post Monday. I think i am still recovering from my chocolate hangover. I thought this would be a good last chocolate picture: a Lomo-ish pic of my strawberry breakfast!


Le Napoleon

I thought I would extend Love and Chocolate Week and add a picture I took last night while walking around the chocolate affaire. In the far left of the picture, you can see the famous cheesecake cones. I bought some legitimately dangerous dark chocolate truffles from here.

Love and Chocolate Week, Part Five

I had to save the best for last. This is Haus Murphy’s, the German restaurant. I love everything about this outdoor patio. Even without the giant pretzel and tons of pink, it’s a beautiful breezeway and is perfectly shaded for balmy evenings with a pint and a (smaller, but not by much) pretzel.

When I walked over there Rose, one of the owners, greeted me and saw my incredulous face.

“Is it pink enough for you?”

I replied; “I wish that pretzel was real!”

Love and Chocolate Week, Part Four

Forget about real roses; they tend to wilt.

Unless you leave these in a warm car or window, these chocolate roses will last much longer!From Cerreta’s of course!

Love and Chocolate Week, Part Three

If you want, I recommend seeing this in person. Delfina Salon went all out decorating for The Love Month. Denise, the owner, had her husband out there helping her set up so it was truly a couples’ effort! If you can’t make it down here, at least click to enlarge the picture.

Here’s one I was playing around with the color. It seems perfect for a v-day card.


Love and Chocolate Week, Part Two

A lot of the shops in the historic downtown like to participate in city-sponsored events, especially ones they can decorate for like the Chocolate Affaire! This is the doorway of Cottage Garden 2, a bungalow shop in Catlin Court. She always decorates in a whimsical way, but spring definitely seems to be her favorite time of year. As soon as February hits, she pulls out all the stops.

I love all these LOVE-ly necklaces that greet you in the doorway.
