Very special thanks to Peter Brydon of Barlovento Chocolates. Peter was a printer before he was a chocolatier; he brought both of his products for us today: a mint -condition Jerry on Broadway poster that he printed in 1987 (which was already claimed for a $200 donation), and an assortment of his chocolates for the phone room staff. My favorite is the Venezuelan dark chocolate bar with Fleur de Sel! Please visit the Barlovento Chocolates web site and check out their story and their products.
