Why not continue the Valentine's Day/Easter pattern and celebrate another holiday with chocolate? We've just come out with some bodaciously beautiful bars. We'll be hawking them for $10 donations at Richmond's Earth Day celebration this Saturday (4/18), 10am-4pm in Manchester's Warehouse District (south end of the 14th Street Bridge), home of ART 180 HQ. Click here for more information about Earth Day Richmond.
Can't come Saturday? You can find us on Sunday at the Richmond Craft Mafia's Spring-Bada-Bing. Providing yet another excuse to come to Manchester, "the boss of all craft shows" will be at Plant Zero from 11am-4pm on Sunday (4/19).

Even though it's not environmental (depending on how you look at it, of course), we thought it was just too perfect not to turn this one into a candy bar:
