Join us Friday, February 8th at the Hotel Ottumwa the annual Chocolate Lovers event hosted by the American Home Finding Association. It is the best way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. A local favorite and everyone is welcome. Attendance has grown every year for this event as each year the decorations and theme rivals the last. The theme this year is the Roaring 20s. You will see attendees in an array of attire: jeans and casual wear, to dressy. Get your photo taken with your special date, or with your group of friends. The photo booth is free, and it will be your favorite photo op of the year.
Sez Who will be playing in the ballroom and there will be plenty of room to dance. This party spreads over the whole second floor of the Hotel Ottumwa. What keeps everyone coming back year after year? The food. Hors d’oeuvres, beautifully displayed will be available in the sweet and savory variety. Over-the-top displays of delicious food, and of course, the star of the night, chocolate. Decadent and delicate desserts are featured throughout the night, including a variety of chocolate fountains. A cash bar will be available with beer, craft beers, wine, spirits, and specialty drinks available.
