Chocolate and Wine for Mom

Calling all chocoholics—and their mothers, of course! This Saturday, Compartes Chocolatier in Brentwood will kick off Mother’s Day festivities a day early with a Chocolate and Wine Tasting event. Compartes has already done most of the work, pairing four hand-selected wines (thanks, Moe’s Fine Wines!) with four of its specially made organic chocolates. Now all you have to do is persuade mom to celebrate the big day early, on May 7—we don’t think that should be too hard.

Sipping and savoring takes place 7-9:30 p.m. at the chocolate boutique, factory, and outdoor lounge. The cost is $18 per person in advance, or $20 at the door. For reservations: 310-826-3380. Cheers to moms!
