Snail Social at Exquisito Chocolates
6:00 PM-8:00 PM
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Slow Food Miami presents its “Snail Social” roaming Happy Hour event on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 from 6PM to 8PM hosted by Exquisito Chocolates, Miami’s first chocolate factory.
For February’s Snail Social, Carolina Quijano, owner of Exquisito Chocolates, will take guests on a journey through the factory that will allow them to taste and experience every step of the bean-to-bar process. Bites include fresh roasted cacao, chocolate cold brew, single estate chocolate, their signature Little Guavana truffle made from Redland guava from Snail Social honoree, PG Tropicals, as well as a fresh guava rum punch for sipping. Additionally, attendees will receive 20% off of retail shop items.
This event is open to the public; $10 donation if guests RSVP in advance through Eventbrite and $15 cash at the door. Tickets can be purchased here. Snail Social attendees can enjoy the Happy Hour menu from 6PM to 8PM. First-time student and teacher sponsored tickets are available – those interested can send a message to Slow Food Miami on Facebook or Instagram.
Hurricane Irma served as the major catalyst that spurred Slow Food Miami to turn their monthly gatherings into fundraisers that would connect the community with the obstacles that farmers face, and to support the local farms most in need. The donations go directly to the Slow Food Farm Fund to support local farm operations in times of agricultural need. The team extends their gratitude for helping them keep good, clean fair food on the tables in South Florida.
There will be a Snail Social hosted by different Snail of Approval chefs and restaurants throughout Miami on the second Tuesday of every month. Other participating chefs and restaurants will be announced throughout the season via Slow Food Miami’s mailing list and social media tagged with #snailsocial. Follow Slow Food Miami on Instagram and Facebook to stay current.
