Salem So Sweet was Salem snowed-in when the fifth largest snowfall in known history dropped more than two feet of snow in the bewitching seaport on February 8. The blizzard caused the event to be rescheduled for this weekend.
The revised schedule is as follows:
Chocolate and Wine Tasting
Friday, February 15, 2013, 6:30 PM
Colonial Hall at Rockafellas, 231 Essex Street, Salem
This event, which benefits the Salem Chamber of Commerce and Salem Main Streets, features wine and chocolate samplings from premier Salem restaurants, stores and sweet shops. Tickets cost $25 and can be purchased at the Salem Chamber of Commerce, 265 Essex Street, Salem, or over the phone at (978) 744-0004.
