The last day of 2011 turns out to be the last day for Artfully Chocolate (aka ACKC) on 14th Street NW. Eater DC brings word that the hot chocolate hub is closing. The final day of business is Dec. 31. In a message to patrons, owner Eric Nelson attributes the shuttering to “[m]any factors,” though none specified. On the bright side, the chocolatier’s Alexandria locations will be expanding to fill the void.
