This won’t be an unexpected post from a blogger once dubbed the Dairy Queen by her loved ones. The Cheesemonger Invitational (how’s that for a name?) will be taking place this weekend! Here’s what all your cheeseheads out there need to know:
WHO: The best-0f-the-best purveyors and vendors. Eataly, Murray’s Cheese, Whole Foods and more will be presenting their finest.
WHAT: A homage to cheesemongers. Attendees are in for a treat: all-you-can-eat cheese, charcuterie, fondue (bring back the 70s!), grilled cheese and mac ‘n cheese will be on hand. Plus beer and wine to wash it down and ice cream to wrap it all up. The best cheesemakers around (over 30 of them) will compete against each other and only one will be crowned as the best in the country.
WHEN: This Saturday, June 30th, from 3 to 9 p.m.
WHERE: The Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint, a quick hop, skip and a jump on the G train.
HOW MUCH: $80 per person. Remember, you can stuff your gut for six hours straight. That’s only a little more than 10 bucks per hour.
