When’s the last time you were invited to a Goatstravaganza?
Never? Well, you’re not the only one… Let Saxelby Cheesemongers be the first to invite you to a goat-erific party this Thursday night in celebration of The Year of the Goat, a fantastic book and travelogue by Maragaret Hathaway and Karl Schatz.
For any of you out there who’ve dreamed of leaving the city for greener pastures, and you know who you are, this book is the ultimate inspiration. Margaret and Karl decided to pack up their Brooklyn digs and head out on the road for a year of living, eating, sleeping, and breathing (yes, all of these things) goat. From Maine to Arizona, they stayed with goat farmers of all persuasions, breeders, cheese makers, you name it… before returning to the East coast and starting a little farm of their own.
This Thursday evening, stop on by Aronson’s Floor Coverings on 17th Street for a book reading, signing, and goat-centric shindig. Saxelby Cheesemongers will be carving up a selection of American farmstead goat cheeses, Chef Frank Lania will be preparing a goat meat tasting menu, and the wine selection will be none other than Goats do Roam (har har!) by Charles Back vineyards.
Oh, and did I mention that there will be live goats attending? Yes, it’s true. As if you needed a grand finale.
Please rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can be sure to bring enough goaty comestibles. Come on down and get your goat on!
