Who needs exercise or heroin to excite those neurotransmitters when theres plenty of chocolate and chili peppers to go around? Consuming sweet and spicy goodness beats going to the gym or becoming a junky any day, especially when Desert Botanical Garden hosts the perfect opportunity to kick those endorphins into high gear with its Chiles and Chocolate Festival. Get your natural high on by sampling gourmet chocolates and fiery salsas from local vendors in a setting of natural splendor. Local DJ fave Rani G will add more feelings of euphoria plus there will be Latin flamenco-dancing lessons from Yumi La Rosa.
