We celebrate our birthday each year on February 11 - which has come to mean a week-long party known as "Free Cheese Week," as well as some awesome collaborations, tasting events, and giveaways.
Help Us Celebrate Our 12th Birthday!
Continuing with last year’s Spread the Love theme (taking us right into Valentine’s Day), this year, our birthday is all about recognizing that we wouldn’t be where we are today without a little help from our friends. In that light, we’re packing the week with lots of fun collaborations in the spirit of continuing to come together for a greater good. And free cheese! Always free cheese! Thank you Austin for keeping us going and helping us live our mission to Do Good. Eat Good.
FREE CHEESE - From Mon 2/7 through Fri 2/11, the first 50 customers each day to visit the Hyde Park shop at 4220 Duval Street will receive a free wedge of Texas Cheese, spotlighting a different producer each day. Those who share their tasting experience on their social media and tag Antonelli’s will be entered for a giveaway. The Shop is open daily from 11am to 7pm; masks are required for entry.
TASTING EVENTS - Antonelli’s is hosting unique tasting events each day in their Cheese House, located at 500 Park Blvd, across from the Cheese Shop. Exploring the concept of terroir through wine, coffee, chocolate, mezcal, and honey, these collaborative events aim to support local businesses while being educational and tasty.
