While indulging in chocolate delicacies, keep warm by sipping a hot chocolate infused cocktail or glass of wine in our “Winter Chocolate and Wine Garden” hosted by Harvard Square’s very own Commonwealth Wine School. Drinks will feature Alc-A-Chino, the perfect blend of 100% Arabica Coffee, cream and cane sugar blended with 6x Distilled American Vodka and Mocha Alc-A-Chino, the original recipe with added imported Dutch Cocoa for a decadent Spiked Mocha Latte, graciously supplied by Howie’s Spiked.

A Winter Carnival event would not be the same without our good friends and crowd-pleasers, Grooversity, who will take off the chill (and perhaps some newly ingested calories!) from 1pm – 2pm with their heart-stopping percussion combining traditional Brazilian grooves like Samba and Axe with Funk, Rock, Jazz and Hip Hop .

At 2pm, DJ extraordinaire, DJ Joey Finnz, will be playing a mix of throwbacks, remixes, and Nu Disco dance music. Come get your groove on and dance like no one is watching! Joe Williams, AKA Joey Finnz, is a drummer, producer, engineer, and DJ. He’s experienced in a myriad of musical styles, having performed as a musician and audio engineer for over 1,000 live events. His passion and knowledge of world music is evident in the track selections and vibes of his DJ performances.

Put your feet up in one of enclosed “igloos” – an ideal place to unwind and warm up after all that chocolate and dancing.
BerrySweets, formerly Shishkaberrys of New England, will be on hand selling their eye-pleasing and mouthwatering strawberries dipped in premium chocolate.
