The first annual cheesetopia took place on April 12 in Milwaukee. It was a fun day! I got to go on a road trip with one of my best friends, Katie Potts, and we ate cheese until we were sick. It was her first time to Wisconsin, so we drank some New Glarus beer and shopped around the Milwaukee Public Market.
The fest itself was pretty cool, though I have to say that it was too expensive. The $25 ticket fee paid for entrance, which was barely monitored, and an insulated bag. Drinks were about five dollars each and then there was the shopping. Of course, we bought two wheels of cheese, Ames honey, and Potter’s crackers. Essentially, you’re paying to shop. I wish the ticket came with a beer. or that there were more accoutrement vendors. Overall, we had fun but I’d be reluctant to pay that much again (especially if I was still unemployed, cheesus forbid).
