Upcoming Activities

Guided chocolate tasting

Sunday, February 11, 2 p.m.
Ballard Condominiums
1525 N.W. 57th Street, Seattle (map)

The guided chocolate tasting will be led by Sandra Andrews-Strasko (PBK UW 1998), author of the Facebook blog Chocolate Speak and International Chocolate Awards judge. Both those new to fine chocolate and long-time chocophiles will find something to add to their repertoires in this hands-on class. Andrews-Strasko will provide an array of fine, dark chocolate bars from a variety of growing regions and we will explore their tastes and stories together. A perfect early Valentine's day date! The cost for the chocolate tasting is $10 per person and guests are welcome.

We will meet in the community room on the second floor of the Ballard Condominiums at 2 p.m. on Sunday, February 11. The room is accessible by either the stairs or the elevator. You will be greeted at the door of the condominiums and directed to the community room.

Nearby on-street parking is available. The area is also served by bus: Metro Transit's RapidRide D Line (faster) and Route 15 (more local stops) from downtown Seattle or the north end of Seattle. The most convenient stop is the corner of 15th Avenue N.W. and N.W. Market Street, about two blocks' walk north and then west to the condo front door.

Please RSVP by February 2 by mailing your check for $10 per person to Puget Sound Association of Phi Beta Kappa, P.O. Box 15258, Seattle, WA 98115, or pay via PayPal below. If you have questions, contact Linda Willenberg at [email protected] or call her at (425) 641-1606.
