It’s going to be mega.
Be on the lookout for choco body paint:
There’ll be samples a plenty so check the sked and map out your journey before you go cocoa-crazy. (It’ll tide you over ’til the 15th annual Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival up at the Wharf in late Summer 2010, anyway) See you there at Ft. Mason on the 20th.
All the deets, after the jump.
