A hot, humid day here in NYC, so here's a cup of melting chocolate gelato from the L'Arte del Gelato stand at the High Line park.

Good chocolate babka is a special treat and the chocolate babka from Russ and Daughters is amazing. Kind of a mix between a bread and pastry, infused with chocolate, a chocolate babka typically comes in a loaf. Russ and Daughters sells wrapped chunks and I can't recall seeing as much chocolate as they stuff in their babkas.

Here are some yummy looking, other babka offerings in New York City, and more here at Serious Eats. Russ and Daughters isn't on either list, probably because it's more of a deli than a bakery. But if you happen to be on East Houston Street in Manhattan, over by Orchard Street, pop in and try a hunk of this chocolatey goodness.

A chocolate bathroom? Sounds delish.
There's a chocolate Kickstarter project worth checking out: Les Chocolats de Chickee-Indulge Your Senses.
One of my favorite chocolate treats when I was a kid was chocolate covered jelly grahams. The chocolate was dark, the jelly raspberry flavored. They're hard to find now, but Russ and Daughters has them. They make them in small, thick bars, not the flatter squares I remember from childhood, but the taste is just as good.

Thanks to Neatorama, we now know about chocolate LEGO blocks! In other LEGO news, this LEGO Female Scientist Kit proved to be really popular, which should have surprised.... nobody.
You can get a S'Mores maker, available on Amazon.
Gotta love this bookish cake. Because, CAKE! And Books!
I like these painted water towers and need to find some to take photos of.
I haven't read the Outlander books, but I am enjoying the STARZ TV adaptation.
There's no denying that chocolate goes well with something salty. Chocolate covered pretzels have always been a favorite of mine, provided the chocolate is dark. But I hadn't considered chocolate with potato sticks despite having loved potato sticks when I was a kid. The Chocolate Bar has remedied this lack in my life.

The marquee of this multiplex movie theater made me smile. All it needs is proper punctuation, maybe an added article and/or preposition.

After a failed outing last year, a friend and I set out last Friday for Rockaway Beach, one of New York's worst hit areas during Superstorm Sandy nearly two years ago. We were happy to find all the beaches open, and even some food concessions. One is CitySticks, where you can get ice pop treats. I'm pretty sure that's where I got a yummy chocolate ice cream cone. At any rate, it was an all-around lovely death, with perfect beach weather.
