As we walked along, out guide Alex gave us lots of information about the city, and different types of buildings, street signs etc...in his French accent, which made the tour that much more fun!
Our final stop was at Vosges,www.vosges.com where we sampled chocolate with chipotles in it. It was good, and spicy! Again, not my typical choice, but a nice treat .
All in all, we walked over 40 city blocks, which I would have to say took care of our calorie intake for the day! It was a fun evening, and something I would suggest if you are in NYC and love chocolate! Find more information at www.sweetwalks.com . Now, I have to start planning for the cupcake tour!!
