Venissimo has a monthly first Friday cheese tasting plate, so we're making this a thing! It's only $15, and you'll have to order by Thursday morning and pick up your plate on Friday. And then not eat it until Saturday, which may just be the hardest part! We'll get together for a bit, eat cheese and chat, what could be nicer on a Saturday afternoon??!?!
From Venissimo: Willy Wonka may have the greatest chocolate factory, but this month's flight has both chocolate AND cheese, paired perfectly together, a match made in heaven. You may think only a creamy brie goes with chocolate, but what until you see what else does. We're mixing various chocolate intensities with various cheese styles for a delightful flight to kick off the weekend in the sweetest way.
Order here: https://www.venissimo.com/product/first-friday-of-the-month-cheese-flight-plate/3928?cp=true&sa=false&sbp=false&q=false&category_id=2 and we look forward to seeing you soon!

I had so much fun doing this last year! I hope you all can join me for an hour of hanging out, catching up, and nerding out! Make yourself a drink, if you're so inclined, or just log on to say hi. Looking forward to catching up!
This event repeats every other week, and RSVPs close at 4p on the day of the event. If no one has signed up by then, the event will be canceled.
