Since chocolate is a great gift for 99 percent of the population (and we don't trust the 1 percent who don't like it), three local confectioners have teamed up for a special holiday shopping event that could cross a lot of folks off your list in one go. Indulge in butter, almonds, and chocolate by Clarine's Florentines, fine classic truffles from Neo Cocoa, and bars with Asian accents courtesy of Jade Chocolates. Champagne and light appetizers will be served as a little gift to the shopper, and a dollar from the admission fee will be donated to Larkin Street Youth Services.
