You're invited to a casual, inexpensive, and DELICIOUS evening out. Grab your friends and co-workers to join you!

The annual Wine and Chocolate Tasting keeps growing, and this year it will include craft beer, international cheeses, culinary and coffee sampling!

This event, which is brought to you by the Greater Ocean Township Chamber of Commerce (GOTCC), takes place on Wednesday, Feb. 22nd, starting at 5:30 pm, at the award-winning Shore Antique Center at 413 Allen Avenue in Allenhurst.

The cost is $15 per person -- all inclusive, open to those 21 and older. The nostalgic scenery is a conversation piece in and of itself!

This is a relaxed evening to mingle, network, and help raise money for all that the GOTCC does to support the community, as well as for the Community Hope Fund, which is a local non-profit that provides both temporary assistance to needy families and valuable programs for children.

This year's participants for you to taste include: Lindt Chocolate Shop of the Jersey shore Premium Outlets, Allenhurst Wine & Spirits, Mister C's Beach Bistro & Bar and Cravings,  Asbury Park's Kim Marie's Eat n' Drink Away, Mark's Place & Restaurant, Lentil Tree, and Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten, Gallo Wine Sales of NJ, Eatontown's Eagle Specialty Coffee, Ocean's Buona Sera Palazzo, Wegman's Ocean, Bradley Beach's Elbow Room Food & Cocktails (sister to Deal's Bar Room & Kitchen), Ocean's (Oakhurst) Caramel Shop and Broad Street Dough Company, Shrewsbury's Nothing Bundt Cakes, and Tinton Falls' Jughandle Brewers.

Wegman's Market of Ocean has been the premier event sponsor and a participant sampling their World Cheeses since the event's inception.

In addition, anyone who has never been a GOTCC member and wishes to join and partake in the great benefits the Chamber offers will receive a one-time 25% membership discount and one free admission to the event if they join prior to the event or at the door.
