Real live women painted in chocolate! A life-sized chocolate stiletto heel!!! A chocolate necklace!!! A handbag made of chocolate cake … and more crazy chocolate stuff, all for charity. This Friday and Saturday evenings at the Domain shopping mall in Austin, a silent auction of the items mentioned above will be held to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which promotes breast cancer research. Come on down! Bidding for the silent auction will be Friday, March 27, starting at noon (so it’s already going on) and will end round 8:30 on the evening of Saturday, Mach 28. The professional models, who will be handpainted by students from the Texas Culinary Academy, will be posing from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday and from 6:30 till the program ends on Saturday. The event is sponsored by Viva Chocolato!, the cute chocolate shop that’s down at the south end of the Domain just west of Macy’s. Participating stores are St. Thomas, bettysport, and Luxe Apothetique, where the models will be on display.
