Groupon has a terrific deal on now for a one day or weekend ticket to the 2012 Northwest Chocolate Festival on September 29 and 30. I haven't yet written a posting about this year's event, but here's my posting about the 2011 event and you can read about this year on the Northwest Chocolate Festival website.
You can purchase a one-day pass for either Saturday or Sunday for only $15 (vs. $28.77 online or $30 at the door) or a full weekend pass for only $30 (vs. $56.65 online or $60 at the door). This is my favorite chocolate event of the year, and this offer is likely the best price you'll find to this year's event.
The deal runs through Wednesday, but there are a limited quantity available, and it may sell out before then. Here's a direct link to the deal.
