An afternoon of chocolate, wine and jazz is coming Sunday, January 27th from 1 to 4:30 pm at the Miners Foundry Cultural Center in Nevada City, California. Chocolate Infusion is a fun speakeasy-themed afternoon of mouth-watering chocolate and wine (and beer) tasting, with authentic 1920s entertainment featuring the incredibly talented Reggie Graham on jazz piano and Marty Geiger on trumpet reminiscent of the old Speakeasy world of 1920’s Chicago. Bring your friends and enjoy their sound throughout the afternoon while you visit the many vendors who will be presenting their best delicacies for you to sample, both sweet and savory. Local wineries and breweries will also be on hand to pour tastes of their wines and beers. All samples, a souvenir wine glass, plus your entertainment and entry for door prizes are included in your ticket price. A no-host bar, sponsored by the Miners Foundry, will sell wines by the glass and also their famous Chocolate Martinis.
This year our “Golden Ticket” promotion is sponsored by Utopian Stone Jewelry of Nevada City. Each week prior to Chocolate Infusion, watch your copy of The Union for a “Golden Ticket” good for a pair of free tickets to the event. Then at the event, each attendee will be handed a sealed envelope upon entry, to be opened all together at about 2:30 pm in the Osborne Woods Hall of the Miners Foundry. One lucky attendee will find the Golden Ticket in their envelope, and they will win a beautiful 14kt gold amethyst necklace, valued at $775, handcrafted by a Master Goldsmith at Utopian Stone, Nevada City.
