Indulge your dark side at the Sin City chocolate festival

It may not be Christmas in July, but it's sure gonna seem like it when the Las Vegas Chocolate Festival & Pastry Show arrives on Saturday, July 7, at the Venetian & the Palazzo.

The event will feature the best chocolate and pastry chefs in Las Vegas, including Jean Marie Auboine, Alicia Boada, Michael Gillet, and "Cupcake Wars" winner Annette Starbuck.  I'm especially excited to meet Taryn Mumpower of Pick Your Poison Bake Shop, since I've been wanting to sample her cocktail cupcakes for a while now.

As if the chocolate and other carb-laden goodies aren't enough, the edibles will be paired with champagne, wine and other spirits.

If you're inclined to feel guilty about such a hedonistic evening, the fact that the event benefits St. Jude Children's Hospital should ease your concerns.  The charity will receive the net proceeds from this amazing show.

General admission tix are only $25 per person.  If you want to start noshing an hour earlier, you can spring $75 each to go VIP.  We don't mind starting at 9 p.m., instead of 8, so it'll be a budget-friendly - if not waist-friendly! - outing for me and Mike.  Hope to see you there!
