COLONIAL BEACH CHOCOLATE AND WINE EVENT THIS EVENING

On February 14th, the Colonial Beach Community Foundation will host its fourth annual Chocolate and Wine Tasting. It’s been a popular fundraiser for the Foundation in the past, and it brings the community together over grapes and cocoa beans. The event is conducted by Eric Nelson, the former owner of Artfully Chocolate salons in D.C., Maryland and Virginia. Nelson is now a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Elite and the President of the Colonial Beach Community Foundation. He has taught classes in pairing chocolate and wine for the past 15 years, and he says he likes to underscore all of the various aspects of the pairings, especially the health benefits. The event this year is set for February 14th… Valentine’s Day… at the Colonial Beach Community Center from 6 to 8pm. Tickets are available through Facebook or at Coldwell Banker Elite, Monday-Friday from 9 to 5. They cost $40 per person or two for $70.
