Indulge your palate. You deserve it.

Join us for an evening of chocolate and cocktail pairing in honor of Mother's Day. Together with special guests Mindo Chocolate and American Fifth Distillery, we’ve planned the sweetest event at the Roadhouse yet!

The founders of Mindo Chocolate, Jose Meza and Barbara Wilson, have been making quality bean-to-bar chocolate in Dexter, MI since 2009. Not only will Mindo bring amazing artisan chocolates to this special event, they will supply one of the most important tenets behind their craft: fun.

American Fifth Spirits Distillery, which opened in Lansing in 2015, offers unique drinks created with their lofty, hand-crafted spirits. We are happy to welcome American Fifth to personally mix each cocktail for you, complementing the luscious chocolates Mindo will be offering.

This is going to be good!

Bring your mother, a friend, or someone who just enjoys chocolate and really yummy drinks, but reserve your seat soon so you don’t miss out on an opportunity to treat yourself!

Please note: The menu for this special event includes cocktails and chocolates only. No food (besides chocolate!) will be served at the tasting.
