Yes, we do have a Chocolate theme on this night – who can refuse? … Certainly, some "Golden Egg" surprises, maybe some favourite “Dark Chocolate” thrown in to temp the healthy senses... It's sure to be a sweet night at HBYC Cruising group night- our first for the year! $10 Meal. Very yummy “Turkish themed dinner”... Indeed, this bears no relation to chickens or chocolate eggs, but all yummy. Dessert included complimentary. A seriously GREAT Black Forrest Cake by Ferguson Blare Bakehouse. Yep, served with ice-cream.
