LAST CHANCE - Cheese-y Bus Tour
This year we have planned quite the kick-off party to announce Black Betty's arrival - a black light, silent disco, special release party! Join us on Sat Nov 9 from 6 to 9 pm. Doors open (and complimentary beverages start pouring) at 6 pm. At 6:15 pm, we'll start a tasting of some of Betty Koster's delicious year-round selections and offerings, like Wilde Weide, Signature L'Amuse Gouda, and Brabander Gouda, each offered with a food pairing and true tales from Certified Cheese Professional (and our wholesale director) Alex Palomo. This past summer, Alex was selected to tour Europe with Essex Street Cheese, importers of Black Betty. That tour included visits to Betty's shops and cheese aging facilities, so you're getting details straight from the mouth! The final tasting to be distributed is the highly anticipated unveiling of seasonal and sought after Black Betty. The official tasting will conclude at 7:15 pm.
At that time, you're welcome to call it an evening OR join us for our black light silent disco party. Headphones will be handed out at 7:30 and dancing will last until 9 pm. Appreciations to beverage sponsors Left Hand Brewing Co. (for providing Fade to Black beer) and Serendipity Wines for your complimentary pairings. Throughout the event, we'll have some cured meat trays, and accouterments like olives, nuts, and bread available for snacking. Please stay responsible and consider ride-sharing when enjoying any alcoholic beverages. More info and tickets here. (Cred for this awesome pic to @tomalesbayfoods.)
