At long last, the June Joy of Cheese events

In June we’re holding two tastings with the theme, Born in the U.S.A.  The first one is June 15 at 7 at d.b.a Brooklyn, 113 N. 7th and the theme for the event is Dial V for Vermont (yes, I’m a fan of Hitchcock).  We will sample seven amazing Vermont cheeses and Ray Deter will sample and discuss seven superb beers to accompany them.  Tickets are $25 and available via Brown Paper Tickets,

On June 22nd, at 7:30, at The Clerkenwell, 49 Clinton St., please join us for Way Out West, a survey of the best western cheeses.  We will present 8-10 great western cheeses (figure west to mean Colorado, Oregon, California, Wash state, and maybe Idaho).  Tickets are $25 and you pay for your beverages as you go.  For more information or to purchase tickets visist BPT,


About jmartin437

I've worked in and around the world of high end cheese for 27 years. I've been everything from a department manager who hired and fired and trained staffs to a weekend warrior who shows up ties on an apron the middle of a rush and talks to customers and cleans up the place. I enjoy it all, and I especially like my current situation conducting informal seminars about cheese at area bars and in class at the 92nd St. Y. The current schedule is always up at In addition I conduct private events that are perfect to lead off birthday parties for foodies and sommeliers and also they make great entertainment for corporate team building events and associates meetings at law firms. In addition, I've been a freelance journalist for 27 years. Currently my profiles of leading musicians and filmmakers appear in the Wall Street Journal and I also wrote about sports for the Root, and for five loooong years, which included the entirety of the Isiah Thomas Knicks era, I wrote about the NBA for the New York Sun. I enjoyed writing about basketball so much that I now do it here at rotations for free.
