Join the Chocolate Trail Day Trip

The Chocolate Cult is planning a day trip and we want to invite you all to join us.  We must know if you are joining us by May 13, 2011, so we can help the folks in Wayne County plan with us.

Join us for the Wayne County Chocolate Trail!

Here is a copy of the information on the Wayne County Website but I can't link directly to the brochure about the trail:

Chocolate Trail of Wayne County
throughout the county
Available year-round
(765) 935-8687 (800) 828-8414
Chocolate Trail Brochure
Richmond and Wayne County's self-guided journey down the chcolate trail takes you to one-of-a-kind bistros, cafes, local chocolatier and candy shops/factories, historic homes, spas, a winery, intriguing gift shops and more.

Chocolate is featured at each stop and is presented in many different forms.
The chocolate trail is available to explore and taste year-round.

Gourmet luncheons and dinners showcasing chocolate as an ingredient in each course will be served monthly at the historic Gennett Mansion.

To receive your FREE chocolate samples, you must present a Chocolate Trail Passport which can be obtained at the
Old National Road Welcome Center
5701 National Road E. (U.S. 40),
Richmond.


OK, not everyone reading this will be able to join us since this is in Wayne County in Indiana in the USA, but for folks within the state or the western part of Ohio, you may want to think about it.

Why?  You get to hang out with your Chocolate Priestess, a few of our Acolytes and a few other chocolate lovers.  All you have to do is show up with your money to buy whatever you want cause we've been planning it.

So what is involved?

We are all meeting in Wayne County, in Richmond, Indiana, on June 3, 2011, at Noon or around Noon to start working our way along the trail.  Specifically, we'll meet here:  
Old National Road Welcome Center
5701 National Road E. (U.S. 40),
Richmond.


We will end the day at the Gennett Mansion where for $38 we'll get a 5-course chocolate meal.

Because of the dinner, I need to have an accurate account.  You pay me nothing, you'll pay the folks when you show up for their dinner, and you'll need money to buy lunch, any chocolate you want beyond the freebies we'll get and add a few bucks to pay for carpooling.

So leave a comment if you want to come and if you can commit to attending with us.  Please do look over the information before committing and make sure you have an email attached to your name in your comment or I can't contact you to make the final arrangements.

Those who live near Bloomington, Indiana, will carpool with the bulk of folks attending.  Those coming from other areas, we'll meet up with you in Richmond, Indiana.

We aren't planning to do this again, this is our once time road trip adventure to see new chocolate sights, so join us now or you'll have to do it on your own.  Email our leader, The Chocolate Priestess, via her email on this blog for further information and to join the day trip.  Deadline is May 13, 2011, to get on the guest list.

Oops! I meant to say to bad I cannot be there. It does sound like fun.

I hope it is, Christine. There are cool events in my area or not far from it, some even chocolate related.
