  • How could you leave off the Brooklyn Chocolate Experiment! It’s this Sunday at the Bell House from 1 pm – 5 pm (the taxidermy thing is right after it).

  • We try to list a variety of things to do, and in this case the taxidermy event won out because it’s only $4 (the Brooklyn Chocolate Experiment is $20-25). But we LOVE chocolate, so we did list it on http://www.theskint.com
