Funkee!! The Joy of Cheese May Events
Note the two e’s and more importantly the two exclamation marks.
May is not a month for shy, subtle and gentle cheese. It’s the month when the sun becomes a regular part of our lives again. It’s when the coats become optional apparel during the day. It’s the time when outdoors is the place to be. Yes, in May the funky days are here again.
And so is the cheese. We’ll do what we do in three separate events.
May 3rd at 7:30 at d.b.a Bklyn, 113 N. 7th St. (between Wythe and Berry), Funkee!!
Seven aggressive cheeses, seven delicious beers. Commentary from yers truly on the cheese and Ray Deter on the brews. The event last from 7:30-8:45, but the good times go on and on and on… Tickets are $25.

May 17th (note, new date) at 7:30 at Clerkenwell 49 Clinton St. Classic Funk
Where did all this funky cheese begin, where is it going. I’m a big believer in core curricula and here we’ll apply to the cheese. Please join us for a survey of eight cornerstone washed rind cheeses. Tickets are $25 and you pay for your beverages separately. For more info, visit
May 18th at 7:30 at Culturefix, 9 Clinton St. American Funk
Insert your own George Clinton joke here. It took a while for the new American cheesemakers to embrace the European tradition of washed rind cheeses, but over the last few years, we’re showing we can get down with the best of the aromatic fromages from abroad. Please join us Wednesday May 18th at 7:30 at Culturefix, 9 Clinton St, for a sampling and discussion of the very best funky American cheeses. Tickets are $25 and you pay for your beverages separately. For more information visit https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/172784
As always, attendees are welcome to pay at the door, just notify me of your intentions at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll reserve space for you.
