The Chocolate Factory Serves Up More Than Just Chocolate

by JACQUELINE CHANCER · June 11, 2008

 Tonight is the third annual Taste of Long Island City fundraiser at The Chocolate Factory, a relatively recent addition to the art scene in Long Island City (it opened in 2003). Bringing together the cuisine of local restaurants, The Chocolate Factory is helping not only artists, but local eateries as well. In addition to awesome edibles, the event will feature performances and video installations, as well as a silent auction and raffle. So come eat, drink and be entertained while supporting the arts.

The Chocolate Factory is a beautiful commercial garage space that provides artists of all mediums with an area free of charge to create and exhibit their work. The Chocolate Factory prides itself on creating an environment, which fosters artistic creativity, by relieving the fiscal obstacles that tend to inhibit such work.

Tickets are not cheap, but remember folks its for a good cause. The money raised will support the Factory for the entire year (until the next Taste of L.I.C.). Hobnob with local artists as well as New York City Councilmembers Leroy Comrie, Helen Sears and David Weprin.
