Valentine’s day is the perfect excuse to try a new local cafe while supporting our city. Vancouver’s hot chocolate festival winds down tomorrow evening. The proceeds from the 7th annual hot chocolate festival go towards the downtown Eastside women’s job training program. 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters is one of many restaurants that are participating in the cocoa festival. At 49th, they have three unique hot chocolates: an aztec spiced hot cocoa, a coconut and white hot chocolate, and a classic dark hot chocolate. Bonus: each drink comes with a curated dessert. With 29 restaurants showcasing over 61 flavours of hot cocoa, you are bound to find one that you like. The last day for the event is tomorrow, so go out, drink luxurious cocoa and support a cause. It’s the perfect place for a trendy date or a catch-up with an old friend – either way, it’s extremely instagrammable.
