Thinking back on the weekend

Ahhh the weekend, those were the good old days...
This past weekend Riley and I were lucky enough to get to go to a beer, cheese and pickle tasting over at Jimmys in the East Village. It was a trifecta of terrific tastes (say that three times fast!) and we were joined by the usual motley crue of folks we call friends. The beer was again provided by Six Point Ales and again I truly enjoyed every sip...it's delicious stuff for sure. Cheeses were from Saxelby Cheesemongers, and I had the good fortune to meet the owner, Anne Saxelby herself. Although she was up to her elbows in cheese she was still just the nicest lady you could meet. She was selling these clever tee shirts that say "Craft" on the front, and "real american cheese" on the back...love it! Also in attendance was Rick from Rick's Picks who I am sure I need not tell you is the man that brought the lowly pickle back to the hip set. His pickled beets and mean beans tower over the pickles on the grocery store shelves...they are so good. It twas a great weekend in the city to be sure!
