It’s ba­si­cally a con­ven­tion cen­ter full of both choco­late and fel­low choco­late lovers from around the world, held Oct. 1 in Pasadena.

Some of the par­tic­i­pat­ing choco­latiers in­clude Amano, Mignon, Zen­bunni, Valenza and David Bacco. And if you’re into mar­i­juana ed­i­bles, this year, Dé­foncé Cho­co­latier, the seed-to-bar com­pany that was started by a for­mer Ap­ple em­ployee, will do a pre­sen­ta­tion on its choco­late ed­i­bles (you must be 21 or older to at­tend this pre­sen­ta­tion). Los An­ge­les Choco­late Sa­lon: Tick­ets are $20 if pur­chased in ad­vance and $25 at the door. Tick­ets for ages 6 to 12 are $10. The Pasadena Con­ven­tion Cen­ter, 300 E.
