Don't celebrate Easter and looking for something to fill the hours of the quiet Sunday afternoon? How about a walking tour of the real chocolate factories? This Easter Sunday, instead of pigging out on candy from Easter baskets, attend a chocolate tour of four of the best chocolate shops in the Union Square and East Village areas of New York City. Believe me, their chocolates are far superior than those hollow chocolate bunnies.
