Wine and chocolate? Uh, yes please.

Tonight in conjunction with Avondale Wine and Cheese and Alchemy Coffee, Slow Food, a five year-old local eco-gastronomic nonprofit, hosts a chocolate and wine tasting.  Wines will be paired with chocolate made by local chocolatier Johnny Battles of Sweet Teeth for an all-indulgent experience.

Raffle tickets will be drawn to award some lucky attendees a private wine, cheese and chocolate tasting for 10, a magnum of wine, and a box of chocolates from Sweet Teeth. If things get a little too crazy and you don’t think you can handle all the aphrodisiacs, you should probably head to ‘bed’ or walk over to Alchemy Coffee who will be having its own party right across the street with live music, more desserts, and specialty coffee.

A portion of the proceeds will go towards Slow Food Charleston, and the tummy pleasing goes to you. —Hadley Lyman
