In place of the regular February meeting, we are holding our annual “Bubbly and Cheese” anniversary pairing event to celebrate 9 years as a club. This special members-only multi-course pairing event is sold out, so if you missed your chance to buy tickets, make sure to purchase your tickets early next year. This event is held at a different location that is better suited for a sit-down pairing, so we will not be at AleSmith.
We will resume regular meetings next month with our March 17th meeting at AleSmith. Check back for additional details.
Every January, we celebrate Queso Diego’s anniversary and the new year with a bubbly and cheese pairing. This very special event is only open to members and their guests and requires pre-registration. To join and attend the event, please contact the officers at firstname.lastname@example.org. Regular meetings will resume in February.
January marks Queso Diego’s third anniversary as a club. To celebrate this occasion and the new year, we will be holding a cheese and champagne pairing celebration. We will explore pairings with a variety of sparking wines. The club will provide cheeses for the pairing and we are asking that attendees contribute a suggested minimum donation of $5 per person to help offset the cost of the sparkling wines that we will be purchasing.
In the past, the cheese and champagne celebration has been our highest attended meeting. To accommodate our available space this year, paid members will be given priority attendance, leaving a few spots for non-members. Please keep in mind that it’s possible we may have to cap off our headcount to ensure our available space is not compromised.
There will not be a meal or food truck provided, but members are welcome to bring snacks, drinks, and food to share as well as cheese. Nate’s Garden Grill (at City Farmers Nursery) is open for those who want to eat before or stop by for a drink after.
Important Note: Because we need an accurate head count to purchase supplies and we need to give our vendors adequate time to fulfill our requests, we have closed RSVPs for this meeting after several notifications on the email list. We kindly ask that you not attend if you did not already RSVP, as we are in the process of purchasing supplies for the meeting based on the current RSVP list.
January marks Queso Diego’s second anniversary as a club. To celebrate this occasion and the new year, we will again be holding a cheese and champagne pairing celebration. We will explore pairings with a variety of sparking wines. The club will provide cheeses for the pairing and we are asking that attendees contribute a suggested donation of $5 minimum per person to help offset the cost of the sparkling wines that we will be purchasing.
The meeting will be held at 6:30pm on Tues, January 15 at Curds and Wine (http://www.curdsandwine.com). The meeting will be held in their meeting suite (7188 Clairemont Mesa Blvd), which is the same building, but in the suite farthest from the main road. Signs will be posted to help guide you. The store will not be open before the meeting, but it will be open briefly following the meeting if you need to purchase any supplies.
We will need some of the members to bring folding chairs. These should preferably be regular folding chairs rather than the fabric camp chairs, so as to take up less space.
There will not be a meal or food truck provided, but members are welcome to bring snacks, drinks, and food to share as well as cheese.
