Adults wanting to satisfy their sweet tooths (but who are unwilling to pass themselves off as a kid on Halloween) can find their sugar rushes at the week-long Toronto Chocolate Festival, happening all over the city and featuring sweet deals from chocolatiers, prix fixe dinners and an all-you-can-eat gala finale. From October 19 to 25, Yorkville’s Crepes a GoGo is giving away a free crêpe with any $10 purchase, and Dasho on St. Clair West is offering samples and a $5 gift card. The deals are valid only with coupons that can be printed from the event Web site.

The festival is topped off by the Chocolate Ball at the Palais Royale Ballroom. There will be a limitless supply of desserts, though realistically, there is a limit to how much the average stomach can take. The $150-per-head fête is ’50s and ’60s themed, so try not to get fudge on those poodle skirts and go-go boots.
