Paper & Chocolate on Saturday, February 9

Ok, the chocolate you're about to read about is admittedly sourced far, far away from New England.  But if you're going to eat chocolate (and you know you will), then you might as well get it from folks that source their beans directly from farmers and process them (the beans, not the farmers) locally.

And that's just what the proprietors of Taza Chocolate do:  "The Taza Chocolate mission is to bring chocolate eaters closer to the cocoa farmer by making minimally processed chocolate that passes directly from the farm, to us, to you. Since we source beans directly from farming communities and co-operatives, we can ensure that a fair price is paid for high quality cocoa beans. From there, we bring the beans to our chocolate studio in Somerville, Massachusetts and grind them into our delicious chocolate."

We found their Chocolate Mexicano at Bloc 11 Cafe in Union Square (Somerville, MA).   (And, a noteworthy aside: after a lifetime of being a skim milk drinker, I finally caved to 1% so that we could buy from Crescent Ridge.)

taza - cooked.jpgIf you're up for an outing this weekend, stop by the Paper & Chocolate event on Saturday, February 9, from 1 - 6 pm at 561 Windsor Street in Somerville.  Taza is pairing up with the very talented Shelley of Albertine Press who will be selling her beautiful handmade cards, coasters, and calendars.

If you can't make it to Paper & Chocolate, you can also find Taza in plenty of other (mostly New England) retailers and online

Its always a thrill to watch games between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers. During yesterday’s game between the Celtics and Cavs, LeBron James Shoes had 42 pts and 9 ast. MVP anyone? Well other that his scoring show, LeBron James drew much attention towards his feet. During the game yesterday, LeBron James was balling in the Nike Air Max LeBron VII Dunkman. The bright shade of green had to distract the opposing players for sure. The Cavaliers trailed by a large amount, but the King led his team to a comeback and ultimately take the lead late in the 4th quarter. But it wasn’t enough as the Celtics pulled away with the win. But even though the Cavs lost, LeBron had the most heat on his feet. Check out more pics after the jump.
