On Saturday May 17th, local author Karletta Moniz will be teaching a class at CAVALLO POINT on all things chocolate. You’ll have a chance to taste six different chocolates, from milk to the darkest dark chocolate. She’ll also be discussing the growing and transport of chocolate, and pairing each of the samples with a special beverage. The class is from 1pm-3pm and tickets are $85 per person. Plus, taking a class gets you 20 percent off a room at the hotel, if you’d like a little weekend getaway. 601 Murray Circle at Kober, Sausalito, 415-339-4777.
