Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Dating back to 1864, Ghirardelli Square is the former factory of Domingo Ghirardelli, San Francisco's original chocolatier. The factory was long ago converted into a high-end shopping and dining complex, but the original chocolate manufactory and soda fountain is still the spot to pick up one-pound chocolate bars and indulge in enormous ice-cream sundaes and banana splits. If you're brave, team up and try the Earthquake: eight scoops of ice cream, eight toppings, fresh bananas, whipped cream, chopped almonds, semi-sweet chocolate chips and cherries in a trough-size bowl; or the more modest Ghirardelli Square—a classic sundae made with scoops of vanilla ice cream covered in hot fudge, whipped cream, chopped almonds and a cherry. Don't miss the demonstration production center at the back of the room where luscious melted chocolate sloshes around in big vats.
