September 12 at Gastronomie 491: Six Ommegangs, Six Cheeses $20

The Joy of Cheese Mininatures, a series of quick and easy events return to  Gastronomie 491, the new upscale retail market and cafe hybrid at 491 Columbus Ave (83rd-84th).  From 7-8:30 on Wednesday September 12th we will survey some of the best that the Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown has to offer (including a new brew that is not yet on the market), and those beers will be paired with six mind blowing cheeses.  Cherisse Ketchum will discuss the beers and Martin Johnson will run his mouth about the cheese.  Tickets are $20 and available via Brown Paper Tickets,

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.
