While last week was all about the bacon, there was plenty of chocolate to be had too.  And this Friday night, chocolate takes over, as Uptown Marion hosts the Harvest Moon Chocolate Walk.

Friday night, send the kids to bed a bit early, get a sitter, than head out to Uptown Marion for a night of shopping and chocolate.  The Harvest Moon Chocolate Walk features nearly 30 businesses that stay open late for you to peruse through, and each also has some kind of delicious chocolate treat for you to enjoy while shopping.

We know many Eastern Iowa residents who count down to this night.  Strolling along on a beautiful fall evening, shopping, chocolates... doesn't get much better. Oh, there's also live music. And while the stores know kiddos love their chocolate too, this is definitely an event that's meant to be enjoyed without them, so be sure to book that sitter.  Or leave the guy at home to watch them and make it a ladies night out.  For me, if the wife and I are able to make it out, I might make it as far as Ramsey's or one of the Chocolate shops, till I have her pick me up when she's done.  I'd ask her to just bring me home some chocolate, but that's not how it works.
