Ever try an Arabian Nights or Earl Grey Tea hot chocolate? Baker-and-owner Maury Rubin tempts us with these and other daily flavors throughout February at his 17th Annual City Bakery Hot Chocolate Festival. Other creative con-cocoa-tions include the ever-popular Banana Peel, the Sunken Treasure, the Passion Fruit Cream, the Hot Chocolate A-Go Go, and, on Valentine's Day, the Love Potion. Since City Bakery hasn't a license to serve alcohol, it'll be interesting to taste the Beer and Bourbon cocoas. The festival culminates with a surprise finale on the 28th.
