Cheese and Halloween Candy (In Person) (Spooky)
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door—
"'Tis some Cheese," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door—
Only Cheese and nothing more."
If you answer the call, proceed to check out.

In honor of spooky season, we'll be exploring unique Halloween pairings with curated artisan cheeses to uncover the dynamic flavor combinations they create.
We'll guide you through tastings from each style of cheese (both pasteurized and unpasteurized), served with accompaniments such as Spanish Quicos (corn nuts), Sicilian olives and scratch-made Easy Tiger baguette. Come ready to share the joy and love of cheese... if you dare.
Please join us a bit early across the street at our Cheese Shop for a complimentary wine tasting (6-6:30 p.m., 4220 Duval Rd). This is a chance to try our featured wine pairing for your event, with the option to purchase a bottle (or any other bottle!) to enjoy during the class.

***The rapping at the door grows louder. You remember what Clarice told you about the beast's inhuman hunger, and icy fear grips your heart. The door finally gives way, tearing at the hinges and hitting the floor with a crack. The beast quickly spots you with its infrared vision and bounds towards you. You remain rooted where you stand in fear. A sliver of the pale full moon breaks through the clouds and finds its way through the window, casting a ghostly light upon the creature's face. You gasp as you see circa 2011 John Antonelli dressed as cheese. The cheese man devours your soul. View image 3, then return to the top of this description.
