We spent most of this weekend indoors recovering from almost having, but never getting the flu. Nevertheless, on Saturday we pushed ourselves out of bed and over the bridge (gasp!) to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden's 9th Annual Chocolate Festival because chocolate. This was our second year in a row at the chocolate festival so we stormed through the place with a confidence reserved only for Dr. Fairchild. Despite our familiarity with the event's programming, we learned a lot during our visit and discovered some great new additions to this year's offerings that we shared with Soul of Miami.
