Question from Rochelle S.
Hi, I will be attending the Chocolate Boot Camp in Chicago on Dec. 1st. Will lunch be provided or are we responsible for our own lunches. If we are on our own for lunches, are there restaurants close by or a place to eat a packed lunch at the facility? Also, the confirmation email said we should let you know if we will be traveling for the class. I am 2.5 hours away and have not yet decided if I will be staying overnight in a hotel the night before or driving up in the morning.
Answer from Rochelle S. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
We are excited for you to join us for class on Dec. 1 for Chocolate Boot Camp. There will be lunch provided for class. Let us know if you have any other questions.
