DC/VA: Manassas Chocolate Festival 11/5

Laura is going to be out of town this weekend and I'm thinking of taking the kids to the Manassas Chocolate Festival this Saturday. Thought I'd post and see if any of the local peeps were interested and wanted to meet us there.

So? You'll be walking around a festival and buring off calories.

Just looked at the price. It's a bit out of my range for the moment.

Ah $8 I can do. I just saw the $30 pass, and I didn't think I could eat that much chocolate.

Ok this doesn't make sense.

The all event pass is $30 (doesn't include the buffet).
The only events they have tickets for add up to $24. What's the extra 6 for?

I'm guessing they originally meant it to be "everything" but later broke out the buffet seperately and didn't re-do the math.

Nah, they probably think we are stupid.

I was in McD's a few years ago and they had one of those moving letter display that always had the "Manager's special of the day". One day the special was a Big Mac, Medium Fries and a drink (before value meals). The special price was 20 cents more than the price of the individual items. I order the individual items and he asked me if I wanted the special and I said no. He said he had to do the special so I called over the manager and told him. With a red face he admitted that he had made the mistake and they had been doing it all day. (it was 7 PM) No one had noticed till me. Go figure.

I bet the parking fees there will kill me. Besides flying across the ADIZ is a pain in the A$$. Much better to leave then stay inside.

Considering it's for chairity, I doubt it is anything intentional or nefarious...

Bump-ity-bump...

I think I'll probably try to get there around 9:30/10:00 with the kids. Do the scavenger hunt/pavillion with them and try to get home by 1:30-2 for their nap. Maybe stop in one of the restaurants in old town Manassas in between events for some lunch.

Considering the only other thing I have planned that day is hopefully playing some SW: BFII on Xbox Live with Skittles and company that night, if anyone comes out you're more than welcome to come back and hang out for a while too.

Last bumpity-bump. Most of you locals have my cell number from the hikes and/or the DC meet. So if you decide to show up at the last minute, give me a ring.

SW: BFII is more interesting to me than the chocolate thing. (I need some new games.) Sounds tasty, but the 45 min. drive out there at 8:30 isn't really in the cards for a Saturday.

Have fun!

I think I'll bow out. There's a lot of other things I should be doing the day before I leave town.

Passing up chocolate? Are you sure you're not straight?

I'm pretty sure. It's just bad timing. The fact that it's an hour drive doesn't help either

It got complicated. When do you get back from LA? Maybe next weekend if the weather cooperates.
