I am not a coffee drinker. However, I will shotgun a cup of Swiss Miss. LOL! I absolutely love hot chocolate and absolutely love this news. The City of Owensboro has announced its first-ever Hot Chocolate Hop and it takes place downtown this Saturday afternoon and evening. Here's the official "Hop" map and menu!
As you can see, the City rounded up a variety of downtown restaurants and businesses to participate and each is serving up delicious hot chocolate.
The Brew Bridge
Holiday Inn Owensboro Riverfront
Lure Seafood and Grille
Colby's Fine Foods & Spirits
The Pub on Second
The Famous Bistro
Mile Wide Beer Co - Owensboro
With all these interpretations of hot chocolate to choose from, I'm torn between about twenty different kinds. However, I have put three of the selections on my "To Do" list: I am definitely heading down to Mile Wide to try their Bourbon Barrel-Aged Salted Caramel Buku. Then, I think a stop at RiverPark Center is a must for the Diehard-inspired John McClane's Yippe-Ki-Yay Cocoa. It has vanilla vodka, Amaretto and chocolate in it. And, I have to say that I am intrigued by Don Mario's traditional Mexican hot chocolate with arroz. Yes! It has rice in it and I am here for it. Or should I say, "Estoy aqui para ello!"
