You work hard, and you deserve a fun and relaxing weekend before heading back to the office on Monday. Luckily, this is the San Francisco Bay Area, and there is always something going on!
Welcome to Weekend Planner. Every Friday we put together a list of the weekend events we think look most interesting and provide them here. Keep in mind there is always a lot more going on, and all it takes is a little digging to find something that will be the perfect activity for you.

Charles Chocolate Shop & Factory, San Francisco, CA
11AM, All Ages

You will be able to watch as our chocolatiers are in production in our kitchen, observe various chocolates being made and learn how hand-crafted, artisan chocolates and confections are made at Charles Chocolates–all while sampling 5 different chocolates and the hot chocolate that we make. The tour will end with an interactive question and answer session.
While you won’t be able to walk through our kitchen (for health and safety reasons), you will gain a much more comprehensive view of all the different processes that occur to make one piece of chocolate.
We look forward to hosting you and answering your questions!
