Murray’s is again presenting their Cheese Fest!!! I went last year with my friend Kelly and met up with Adventure Mom (& Dad) and we had so much fun! Mr. Adventure Mom said it was his favorite event that he’d been to. But why?
Well first – there’s cheese. There are cheese samples – sweet, bitter, funky, melty, soft, hard and everything in between. Literally – you’ll be stopped up for days. #TMI
There’s even pate! There’s literally every kind of cheese and lots of meats too. Then we thought we couldn’t eat any more cheese – and we found olives!!
There was also a mac & cheese tasting and a grilled cheese tasting. This was awesome because chefs around the city come and make their best. (Did I mention you shouldn’t eat for 24 hours before???)
And the best part is the VIP tickets – they sold out last year!! Why? In addition to the unlimited tastings – you get two drink tickets and you get access to a special tasting (wine, beer or bourbon) hosted by the folks at Murray’s Cheese. I have to say this was EYE OPENING – we learned, we ate and we drank – boom!
And – I just had a great time – besides the special cheeses, the grilled cheese, the mac & cheese – there’s also just a bunch of samples to try of all the cheese accoutrements (like meats, olives, beer, wine, etc).
And along the way – I even bumped into a Food Hussy Fan – which is always fun! He picked me out – hey bud! Hope I see you again this year!
I want to thank Murray’s for providing me a couple of tickets to attend this year’s festival and they’re giving me 4 tickets for you!!! I’m giving away two pair below – so be sure to enter!
But if you want the VIP – you’ll have to get those – and let me tell you – it’s worth it. I don’t normally think VIP tickets are worth the price but these – definitely are! We had so much fun and it really helped to get in early because it gets PACKED!!!
Also – this year the event is at Smale Park – I’m interested to see how the change in time and venue does but they killed it last year so I’m guessing we’ll have a repeat of that1
Join me – won’t you?!
