City Bakery Hot Chocolate Festival 2013
[UPDATED: January 28, 2013] It's February and that means it's time for City Bakery's annual Hot Chocolate Festival. For every day in February, the popular Chelsea eatery City Bakery will be spicing up its delicious cocoa with a different flavor. That's 28 days of hot chocolates that need to be sampled. And since City Bakery is such a kid-friendly spot that's nearby the wonderful Books of Wonder and lots of other neighborhood attractions, it makes for a great winter outing.
From Vietnamese Cinnamon to Espresso Hot Chocolate, there's a cup of cocoa with your name on it, depending on how adventurous you want to be. Chili Pepper Hot Chocolate, anyone?
Check out the City Bakery Hot Chocolate Festival website to see the calendar of flavors so you can pick the day you want to go. The festival kicks off on Friday, February 1 with Lemon Hot Chocolate and will end with a surprise flavor.
