Glendale Chocolate Affaire

It used to be there wasn’t much to do in The Glen, but that’s fast becoming ancient history. Along with an Antique Row that rivals any in the state, Glendale is the home of the NHL’s Phoenix Coyotes and, of course, the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals, who nearly pulled a very sweet upset, indeed, down in Tampa last weekend. Well, gentlemen, if you've got a non-football-fan romantic partner who's been indulging your Cards obsession, why not return the favor? We’ve got just the event for you: the Glendale Chocolate Affaire, where you can experience a romantic renaissance at the lavish annual soiree. Whimsical horse-drawn carriages will tour Glendale’s quaint historic district, authors of paperback bodice-rippers will sign their books and offer free writing workshops, and you’ll be able to explore the coolest confectionery around — Cerreta Candy Company — at no charge. And let’s not forget the aphrodisiacal qualities of live entertainment, gourmet dining, fancy beverages, and — have we mentioned chocolate yet? Hey, even defensive linemen like to relax with a pound or two of the sweet stuff.
