Stuff yourself with all kinds of chocolately goodies at the annual Salon du Chocolat, at the Paris-Expo - Porte de Versailles (metro line 12), 10am-7pm. Entrance €14. You can get advance tickets online or ask at your favorite chocolate shop if they have any extra invitations. Avoid the weekend unless you're a masochist!

Wow, thanks for posting the video. Very neat! I have to make sure my husband and I go there before they close for the season. I could really use some of that chili right now! It's freezing here in Seattle! And that was a HUGE vat of it, too.
