As you are probably aware, we are big fans of the Chocolate Room in Park Slope. One time we drank milkshakes there. One time we ate a cupcake there. One time we just went chocolate bar shopping there. One time we even took a chocolate-tasting class there!
Okay, fine, just kidding: we have done all those things more than once.
Sadly, the Chocolate Room has to move out of their Park Slope storefront. Luckily, they have signed a new lease on a new shop just down the road, at Fifth Ave. and Bergen Street. Sadly, moving is expensive. Luckily, they have a Kickstarter you can fund.
Even more luckily, the Kickstarter rewards are exactly what you'd hope they'd be; i.e. chocolate. If you pledge $5 you get a chocolate chunk cookie. I have eaten that cookie before and it is delicious. If you pledge $2,500 you get to make truffles with the Chocolate Room's executive chef, but frankly, the odds seem to be against your having $2,500.
There are a lot of Kickstarters for baked goods out there, and clearly we do not post them all, but this one is one of my most beloved food venues, so I encourage you to take a look before the campaign ends on November 25.

BOTTOM LINE: How could you be anything other than in love with a place called the Chocolate Room?
