Want to get a peek inside The Dutch Chocolate Shop, recently "uncovered" Batchelder architectural and historical gem disguised as a cellphone store? Tonight is the night!

"Tile connoisseur" Brian Kaiser will be on hand in the soda shop on 6th during tonight's monthly ArtWalk. He'll be talking about Ernest Batchelder and The Chocolate Shop in three talks over the course of the evening. The first, at 6 PM, will be repeated at 7 and 8 PM.

Plus you'll get to step inside what's been a Metro PCS store in recent years, with steel grates and particle board covering up the fantastic, opulent brown Batchelder tiles that were installed when the soda shop opened in 1914.

Tonight's event is totally free and open to the public.
