Is the Sweet Days Chocolate Festival fun/interesting and worth seeing/doing in Budapest?

It is in Szent István ter so if you are in town sight seeing during those days its going to be impossible to miss it. You will be walking there at least once, if not multiple times.

And.....................

The Binder Quartet has a good reputation and the venue is pretty special. Gourmet food, jazz music, what could be better. Be sure to purchase a ticket AND book a reservation. Both are required for some reason..... http://opusjazzclub.hu/concerts

James, I researched your recommended Opus Jazz Club as an option for me on Tuesday or Wednesday August 29 or 30. Looks great. Website seems to indicate a table Reservation? Do I need to book now for the 30th show or can I just show up a little early?

Oh, crud. I'm going to miss it . . . I arrive 4 days after it ends. I guess I'll have to drown my disappointment in a bottle of Hungarian wine.

Chani, I know a Rabbi in the VIII-th that makes pretty good kosher palinka

I'm not quite a pensioner just yet but the idea of being one in Budapest gets more and more appealing.

Christa - being a pensioner anywhere is pretty good :-)

James - I'm much more of a wine drinker than harder stuff. I promise I will try some apricot palinka when I first get to Budapest and if I do like it, I'll try to get the rabbi's (or is it a rebbe?) info. Also I'm a non-discriminatory drinker, I will drink Kosher as well, if the opportunity presents itself. . . .
