I recently took my wife on a fantastic date. It two big things going for it. First, we went to Georgetown. Second, there was chocolate involved. Lots of chocolate! We went to seven of the finest places to get chocolate in Georgetown. Such a fantastic journey has been dubbed the Chocolate Tour of DC. and is run by Great Food Tours. Our tour group contained about a dozen chocolate fiends. They were from all walks of life, represented all age demographics, and they were quite pleasant as long as you didn’t get between them and a processed cocoa bean. Our fearless leader was Linda and she was personable, knowledgeable, and most importantly a lover of chocolate. During our two-hour and two-plus mile chocolate mission throughout Georgetown she showered us with chocolate wisdom and fun facts about each shop. Enough with the words already. I’ll let me photos finish the rest of the story. But you should know that the day I took these photos I was a husband first, chocolate connoisseur second, and lastly a photographer. So even if these aren’t my best photos I still think your sweet tooth make audible cries for attention.
I will be adding to this post as time permits. so come back to drool over more chocolates.
