Tasting: Cheese of Ireland

Thursday, July 24

Cheese makes me happy. I would eat it every single day of the week if I weren't worried about turning into a flabby cheese wheel or suffering from a gassy lactose overdose. If you, too, are a cheese devotee, Whole Foods hosts a Cheeses of Ireland presentation with John Durcan of the Irish Dairy Board, who talks about the country's variety of cheesy offerings and provides tastes of several different varieties. 6-7:30 p.m., 1458 N.
