While it looks like the weather will be getting somewhat warmer this weekend, it’s still cold; it’s still winter. Luckily City Bakery’s (3 West 18th Street) 17th Annual Hot Chocolate Festival gets underway this weekend. Saturday, January 31st is opening night. The bakery will be open until midnight and feature banana peel, cinnamon, beer, and darkest dark hot chocolate. After that, they’ll have a special hot cocoa each day throughout February. We’re most intrigued by the ginger hot chocolate on the 3rd.
