How do the chalk artists do it?

At my current place of employ, I have an ever-changing list that I think would look cool on a chalk board. However, I don't like how chalk leaves behind that white haze after you erase something, and I've never been able to acheive the nice solid color that you see at the local coffee shop or Trader Joe's. What are the secrets of a chalk artist?
Mainly: how do I get nice vibrant, solid colors? They almost look like pastels at the coffee shop I frequent. Is there a special kind of chalk that's better than the run-of-the-mill $0.99 box from Staples? And since the list will be changed on a regular basis, how do I avoid the dreaded white haze from continual erasings? Any other tips or pointers would be greatly appreciated. CHALK ON! sorry, that was corny
