Chocolate Lab – Young Alumnae Happy Hour – February 20th, 7pm

Chocolate_Lab_1Foodie or not, you won’t want to miss this Happy Hour. In November, Michael Recchiuti (othewise known as the “Picasso of Chocolatiers”) opened his first San Francisco cafe, aptly named Chocolate Lab. The cafe offers sweet treats from chocolate to adult friendly ice cream sundays and savory items from cheesecake to charcuterie.

We know. we know. We had you at “Happy Hour” didn’t we?

A number of us were curious about the spot and now we have an excuse to enjoy it! Join us on February 20th at 7pm for a Young Alumnae Happy Hour at Chocolate Lab in the Dogpatch for a mid week treat where you can recharge for the rest of your week with a little indulgence and some Theta time.
