Three events, all great.

Tickets are $25 and attendees pay for their beverages separately. For more information, please visit Brown Paper Tickets,

March 16th at 7:30 at Culturefix, 9 Clinton St., Italian Blues

If you think Italian Blue only means one type of Gorgonzola then you have another thing coming, another six things to be precise. Please join us Wednesday March 16 at Culturefix, 9 Clinton St. (near Houston St.) for a discussion and sampling of the great blue cheeses of Italy. There will be wonderful varieties of gorgonzola as well as several other blues; expect a wide range of biting flavors and sumptuous textures. Tickets are $25 and you pay for your drinks separately.

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.
