Chocolate changed David and Pam Griffin's lives. David was more than three decades into a manufacturing career, while his wife, Pam, was 16 years deep in a career at a major coffee chain. The two became restless in their respective careers, so they left their jobs and looked for a joint business venture. They both settled on chocolate, inspiring David to begin studying under experienced pastry chef Delphin Gnomes at the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts. He started to create his own chocolate varieties, often incorporating healthy ingredients. In fact, his first creation was a dairy-free dark chocolate topped with pistachio. Pam, meanwhile, wanted to come up with an appropriate name for the business that reflects the catharsis and creativity chocolate can inspire. Hence, Chocolate Therapy was born. Today, the duo continues to produce innovative treats, displaying their decadent oeuvre in their store’s glass display case.
David and Pam can also schedule parties at their store. During the festivities, adults, children, or undercover oompa loompas masquerading as children can tour the chocolate-making facility and discover the secrets behind how the Griffins create their truffles, dipped caramels, and molded chocolates.

Inside Kings, it can be hard to pinpoint the source of clattering sounds and uproarious cheers. The noise might stem from the bowling section, where glowing squares of abstract, retro wall art bookend the alleys. It might also come from ricocheting billiard balls, a well-aimed skee-ball, or a shuffleboard shot in the game room. Maybe someone spotted a celebrity—Bill Murray, Salma Hayek, and Lady Gaga are all on an extensive list of past famous visitors. Wherever their origins, the telltale echoes of competition and camaraderie beckon to guests throughout the venue. They're accompanied in the air by the scents of comfort food, from staples such as popcorn shrimp to inventive fusions such as cheeseburger spring rolls. Sweeter aromas waft from multiple bars as the staff flavors martinis with gummy bears, pop rocks, and ice cream instead of the traditional fixings, olives or entire lemons on toothpicks. As for sights, the surroundings blend vintage flair with luminous technology. More than 30 high-definition televisions line the space, broadcasting sports games and bowling scores. Though the game-room amenities differ slightly based on the town—Boston's Back Bay has six Brunswick Gold Crown pool tables, and Dedham boasts four miniature-roller-ball lanes—each Kings location hosts group events, including parties and corporate getaways where you can finally laugh at your boss's ridiculous shoes. Weekly themed nights for the public also encourage dancing, karaoke, and trivia.
