Hey, at least I got a response without knowing the secret handshake! Whew...
I'm happy to offer my place for a get together. It's generally centrally located if people are coming from further away. I will also offer my homebrew to pair with any cheeses people have. My first cheeses won't be ready for a couple more months, but I'd even make a fresh cheese or buy something interesting from the store to share.
Weekends are tough for me, and fridays can be exhausting after a long week... so my preference is always for a thursday. But if others are coming from further away, maybe it will have to be a weekend thing? What is anyone else's preference? Of course if it's just me and Cartierusm, then we can just figure something out offline.
