Today, you should… karaoke at Romeo Chocolates for a good cause


Eat and sing your heart out during an evening of “Cacao & Karaoke” today at Romeo Chocolates located Downtown. The karaoke night will kick off a monthly series at the chocolate shop and will double as a fundraiser to help communities affected by the Mt. Taal volcano eruption in the Philippines last week.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns’ Bayanihan Disaster Relief and Rehabilitation program, according to organizers. Funding will go toward immediate disaster relief and long-term rebuilding through medical rehabilitation missions.

Organizers said attendees will be asked for donations at the door on a sliding scale of $5 to $20 and will be able to purchase chocolate, beer and wine as well as charcuterie.

Another great thing: This event is co-organized by the Filipino Migrant Center, which helps low-income and immigrant Filipino workers, youth, seniors and families in Long Beach.

Giving us a moment’s pause: Gourmet and fair trade chocolate? What’s not to love?

Romeo Chocolates is located at 460 Pine Ave. The event is from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
