There Will Be Chocolate

Black Friday meets Dark Chocolate

    Welcome to the Home Skillet, where we urge the scientific community for more research on “the itis” and its effects during Thanksgiving. Here’s what’s going on during the holiday-shortened week.

    Friday, November 28-Saturday, November 29: Look, it’s Black Friday. Do yourself a favor. Do your family a favor. Skip the impossibly long line at Best Buy (and getting elbowed in the face by a woman holding a Hannah Montana protractor) and head to the Chocolate Festival at Dover Downs.
    There are choral and musical performances, ice carving, cooking demos, and for the wee ones, a gingerbread and candy village. Perhaps the best part: It’s free.
    Oh and did we mention chocolate, sweet giver of life? Comforter of souls? Yes, there will be lots of it.
    For a full lineup of exhibitors and events, go here.
    The choco-blasted fun starts at noon Friday from the Rollins Center in Dover.

    Black Friday eats: In case you are insane enough to hit the malls Friday, you’re going to have to eat something. So here’s a rundown of all the deliciously horrifying mall food you’ll find in Delaware. See some common denominators? That’s right, folks: We’re three-for-three on Auntie Anne’s and Sbarro.
