Food and Drink Features
Since the time Mayans and Aztecs in Central America and Mexico included chocolate as part of their diets, people around the world have had a perpetual love affair with chocolate in every form.
Even if you don’t like to eat, dance, gamble or participate in live or silent auctions, there are other reasons to attend the Edmond Women’s Club’s Havana Nights Gala, like the fact that all proceeds will benefit local charities. Nevertheless, put on your cocktail attire and eat, dance, gamble and auction the night away at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel, 1 Park Ave. Tickets are $125 per person or $200 per couple.

If you’ve ever drunk some beer and thought, Man, I wish this was coffee instead, the folks at Black Mesa Brewing Co. and Elemental Coffee Roasters have the brew for you. The OKC-based companies will debut Red Badger Stout, a coffee-infused craft beer, with a tasting event from 7:30-9:30 p.m. Thursday at Elemental Coffee, 815 N. Hudson Ave. Admission is free, but space is limited. Call 633-1703 or visit facebook.com/elementalcoffee.
