Performing the Truffle Shuffle for your dear Valentine seems like a great gift in theory. In practice, however, a gift combining truffle showmanship with edibility will likely score better marks. Create and claim your own batch of truffles with today's deal. For $45, you get one admission to a Chocolate Truffle Workshop at Taste of Chocolate, an $88 value. Pick up a couple for your couple to prove once and for all that chocolate can survive and thrive outside a heart-shaped box.
Get to the bottom of the dark shroud of mystery surrounding chocolate. This workshop will not only teach you all about its origins, addictive tendencies, and power to heal rug burn—but also how it is made. Learn about the conversion process from bean to bar, and how this gooey good stuff is then transformed into truffle form. When you’re done, you’ll leave with 35 to 50 truffles of your own making. If you're attending with a partner, you're looking at up to 100 truffles, or enough to feed one albino polar bear until he's a rich grizzly brown.
Located in Boston’s Financial District in Elephant & Castle, Taste of Chocolate has several available workshops at 1 p.m. on Saturdays, and if demand is high enough, additional classes will be added. Check the schedule for upcoming workshops.

Mystery Scavenger Hunt
Nine possible weapons. Six crime scenes. Two-and-a-half hours. As for the rest, well, that's for you to figure out. Mystery Scavenger Hunt turns everyday folks into hard-boiled crime detectives, sending them on a wild foot chase around Faneuil Hall to solve clues, pinpoint motives, and nab a murderer. Along the way, they'll encounter a cast of usual suspects and meet with special agents eager to share tips or false leads, and any aspiring gumshoe cunning enough to crack the case will bring home a special prize.
