Unique’s Cory Van De Ven will be pouring black muscatel and a chocolate-infused port to pair with the chocolates–some of which originate from Ghana and Madagascar–as well as cherry-almond and fig-and-fennel bars. $10 gets you two glasses of wine, small bites, and chocolate samples.(Theo’s special Valentine’s Day flavors have sold out, so if you want to hunt down their dark-chocolate ginger rose or milk-chocolate pink peppercorn and cherry bars, you’ll have to get the goods factory-direct, in Fremont.) Tuesday, February 9, 7-9 p.m. Vermillion Gallery and Wine Bar, 1508 11th Ave., 709-9797.Advance tickets, here.
