Chocolate Buffet Trip

Dozens of chocolate cakes, pastries, crepes, and other edibles. Just another Vision & Cognition lab-meeting, right? …Well, partially true. In February of 2003, lab members and friends went on an outing to the weekly all-you-can-eat Chocolate Buffet at Le Meridien Hotel (now called the Langham Hotel) in Boston. Despite (because of?) some overstuffed stomachs, a good time was had by all. We even met up with a Food Network camera crew who were filming a special about chocolate, that was due to first air in June 2003. Don’t worry, the chocolate-covered children got lots of T.V. coverage!
