Celebrating 10 years of serving Austin!
We can’t believe it! It has almost been 10 years since opening the doors to Austin’s only cut-to-order cheese shop at the time. Yes, this February 11, 2020 will mark our 10th anniversary and in keeping with tradition, we’ve got to make it better than ever, including our traditional #FreeCheeseWeek celebration, ten straight days of events and tastings, shop specials, and more. Read on for details, and join us. Our biggest goal is that we say THANK YOU and provide ample opportunities to appreciate you and make it a true celebration for #AntonellisTurns10.
Free Cheese Week: Feb 3 - Feb 7
See Lineup Below:
For our first anniversary way back in 2011, we knew we wanted to “make it rain” cheese - and not only give away free cheese in the shop, but take it to the streets and make our celebration accessible to lots of different folks. We also wanted to appreciate our wholesale partners who source artisanal foods through us. To that end, we’re keeping it up. Check out the schedule below, noting that each location will start at 5pm on their scheduled date giving out our free cheese plates while supplies last at each location. Our restaurant partners do this free of charge - even though it still requires labor to get that cheese plate to you (and takes up valuable seats). To that end, we kindly ask you to still tip your server, and if you feel so inclined, order a beverage pairing or other treat to go with your complimentary cheese board. Don't forget to tag us on social media @AntonellisChz with #FreeCheeseWeek for a chance to win tickets to a cheese tasting class.Note: These free cheese plates are offered at the partner restaurants starting at 5pm daily and NOT in our shop; for shop specials, read on! .
Ten Straight Days of Cheese-y Events
#AntonellisTurns10 - From our humble beginnings of leading cheese tastings for just 8 folks at a picnic table in the front of our shop after it had closed for the day to now hosting over 200 public classes and private tastings a year - both in our Cheese House events venue and offsite - we are thrilled that you are wanting to learn more and just have a reason to relax and build community around a shared experience of cheese. Thank you! For all of our events, check out our full calendar here - noting that we still host 3-4 events weekly throughout the year and would love to see you at one. For more information on each event listed below, click on the event title. Rated “one of the best food experiences in Austin!” Unless otherwise mentioned, all tastings are located in our 110-year old Cheese House events venue at 500 Park Blvd ATX 78751; parking lot accessible off Duval Street and in the lot behind our Cheese Shop.
It all started in the little cheese shop that could. While we’ve been excited to grow to include thriving events, wholesale, and ecommerce businesses, we know it all began doing what we love best - providing fresh cut-to-order cheese, cured meats, and pairings in our shop and building a community one shared bite at a time. So it’s only fitting that we host some special events in the shop as well. Whether it’s your first time or a weekly stop, our mongers can’t wait to find the perfect bite that results in your own happy dance. Our Hyde Park Cheese Shop is open daily 11am to 7pm at 4220 Duval Street ATX 78751.
