Ginger Elizabeth will teach the hows and whys of souffles

One of my favorite places to satisfy my sweet tooth is Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates on L Street between 18th and 19th. It's a great business on a block that, believe it or not, used to be absolutely dead.

Ginger Elizabeth Hahn will be teaching yet another class on her favorite topic -- dessert. Here is the press release I just received. You'll notice the class is in a vacant penthouse of the loft apartments across the street. I believe the asking price for that unit is $1.2 million. I recently attended a party there and it is quite spectatular. So if you're on the fence about attending the class, figure that it's worth at least 10 bucks just to hang out in that loft for awhile. Here's the information:
