Have an affair on the Square with chocolate

— There’s no reason to keep your affair secret any longer.

You can stroll the Square in Athens on Saturday, Feb. 9, and openly enjoy your love affair with chocolate. The Spirit of Athens plans to get you in the mood for Valentine’s Day by sponsoring “A Chocolate Walk on The Square.”

Local merchants will have samples that will make your sweet tooth say, “Ahhh.” There also will be sweet deals for shoppers.

The event will be from 2 to 5 p.m. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased online at www.athensspirit.blogspot.com or at the SOA office at 107 N. Jefferson St. next to LuVici’s on the Square. There are a limited number of tickets available, so early purchases are encouraged.

Check in at the SOA office the day of the event between 1:30 and 4:30 p.m. to get a goody bag with the list of participating merchants and a treat.

The event includes a door prize drawing for $25 in “love bucks” that can be redeemed at participating downtown stores.

“The love bucks spend just like cash,” SOA Director Trisha Black said. “Chocolate and shopping — what could be better?”

But shhh. Don’t tell the children about this chocolate stroll.

“This event is like Halloween for adults and older teens,” SOA Publicity Chairwoman Letisha Brinkley said. “The children got to visit our merchants on Halloween. This is a time for the adults to treat themselves to some alone time with their favorite sweetie or favorite sweet treat.”

To find out more about “A Chocolate Walk on The Square,” call 256-232-9040.

The participating merchants are Pimentos, Trinity’s, Carole Foret Fine Art, Pablo’s on Market, Gray and Holt, LuVici’s, Bennett’s Clothing, Crawford’s Gifts, CEI Bookstore, Claiborne Specialties, Shoe Gallery II, U.G. White and Village Pizza.
