Limit your Halloween candy intake at least a bit over the days leading up to this sweet treat of an event. The Decadence! Spokane Chocolate Festival, taking place for the third time in the past four years, is, as its name implies, all about the confection many of us crave most. Many of the area’s confectioners, restaurants and other food industry purveyors are converging in downtown Spokane, bringing with them all the milk and dark chocolate creations even an experienced sweet tooth can handle. We’re talking baked goods, a milk bar, s’mores bar, local wine ($15 additional) and coffee pairings with chocolate, and even some savory samplings, like a cocoa barbecue rub. Rounding out the celebration of all things chocolate will be live music, chair massages and spa treatments, live art making and even a session on its history. A portion of the event’s proceeds support local nonprofit Inland NW Baby.
Fri, Nov. 3 from 4-9 pm • $20 • Washington Cracker Co. Building • 304 W. Pacific • decadencespokane.com
