What better way to liven up a cold February evening than with CHOCOLATE!
As part of our monthly First Friday Events, the BSBPA is excited to present our 6th Annual Ballston Spa Chocolate Fest. This year’s family friendly event will be held on Friday, February 1, 2019, from 6-9 pm. Area restaurants, bakeries, and chefs compete to showcase their talents and tastes by preparing small sample sized chocolate offerings to be judged by a panel as well as fan favorite recognition. Each visitor pays $1 for the sample and will vote on their favorites in 3 categories–dessert (sweet), savory and beverage. Pick up a “Sweet Spot” Map/Ballot at any participating venue, or print the version below. Drop off at any venue after you are done.
Participating chefs/locations for 2019 include: Pizza Works, The Whistling Kettle, Sunset Cafe, Front Street Deli, Next Door Kitchen, Coffee Planet, Nomad Coffee & Crepes, Daisy Dry Goods, Henry’s Tavern, Sacred Journey Ceramics, Two Birds Marketplace, Grandma Apple’s Cheesecakes at Rebuilding Together Saratoga County, The Chocolate Spoon and Adirondack Barkery (treats for dogs) at National Bottle Museum, The Inked Bakers at Saha Yoga, Jessicakes Saratoga at Two If By Sea, Bel Sapore at True Elegance Boutique, EMVI Chocolate at Howard Hanna Real Estate, Cake by Alissa at Glassworks, Alexander’s Bakery at A Bead Just So, Dickinson’s Delights at Creative Endeavors, Stella Pasta Bar & Bakery at Corina Contemporary Jewelry and Abbas Acres at Ballston Spa United Methodist Church.
