Historic Downtown Long Grove Announces Inaugural Cocoa Crawl

WHAT: LONG GROVE COCOA CRAWL

Long Grove is in the midst of a storybook comeback as the historic village is reclaiming its “destination town” label through exciting year-round events and unique new businesses.  On Saturday, February 3rd, several merchants are teaming up to create a fun-filled, family-family outing where people can shop, dine and make memories.  The inaugural Long Grove Cocoa Crawl celebrates the winter season and the local scene.  Guests who attend the free event from 12 pm to 4 pm will start at the Visitor’s Center where they’ll pick up a map of participating businesses.  From there, they can stop by as many spots as they like and come back to the Visitor’s Center to vote on their favorite and be entered into a raffle for prizes donated by participants.  (Raffles will be drawn the following week and winners notified via Facebook and email).  All 19-plus stops around town will be serving something cocoa-related – from hot cocoa beverages to hot chocolate snacks.  To top it off, merchants will provide visitors with more than just a product to take home; they’ll provide a friendly person to help find the perfect treasure.

Examples of the complimentary items being served at the 19 participating Cocoa Crawl stops include (for a full list of participants, contact publicist Jody Grimaldi):

  • Covered Bridge Creamery serving Hot Cocoa Supreme
  • Long Grove Confectionary serving Hot Chocolate Bark
  • Signature Popcorn serving Hot Chocolate Popcorn
  • How Impressive serving Hot Cocoa Krispy Treats

WHERE: Downtown Long Grove, starting at the Visitor’s Center located at 308 Old McHenry Rd, Long Grove, IL 60047
