This Week(end) at Saxelby Cheesemongers… Amazing Customer Plans to Circumnavigate Manhattan on Waterskis, Plus Cheesy Events Galore!

Bright and early Sunday morning, we’ll be packing up our cheesy equipment for the Lower East Side Apple Day and the New Amsterdam Market. However, Mary Kocy, cheese lover extraordinaire, and an amazing member of our community, will be suiting up for one of the most fantastical feats we’ve ever heard of… A trip around the isle of Manhattan on waterskis, all to raise money for a good cause. Comparatively, yes, we are a bunch of wimps.

Mary Kocy’s Sunday Morning Workout…

We thought Mary’s feat was so outlandish, so incredible, and so darn fun, that we wanted to share it with you! Our customers are the most important (and most enjoyable) part of our business, and when somebody does something extraordinary, we want to spread the word. For the full report on Mary’s maritime adventure, check out the NY Times Cityroom Blog.

So, what are your Sunday plans? Whether it’s sleeping in, reading the paper, coming out to New Amsterdam Market or the LES Apple Day, or doing some crazy feat of strength, Saxelby Cheesemongers wishes you a wonderful weekend!
