my kind of friday

Every Friday from October 31 until November 28, head to Baricelli for flight of bubbles and a trio of cheese for $30. Baricelli is known for its outstanding cheese selection, easily the best in Cleveland. And how fun to pair it with a flight of premium champagnes.

Note to Baricelli – please revisit this Friday special for early next year. I have around 7 weeks to go with this pregnancy and even though this Friday special is right up my alley, I can’t go for obvious reasons. Why is it that you can’t eat any of the good stuff while pregnant? Most good cheeses are off limits, a lot of fish, sushi (unless it’s cooked), wine (ok, I get this one but it’s hard – although I do allow myself a glass of red here and there), caffeine, etc. I know it’s all for a good cause, but I miss brie and the rainbow roll at Pacific East!

At any rate, head to Baricelli because this will no doubt be a fun night, especially if you are as much of a cheese fanatic as I am.

    You’re on! I love the idea of guest blogging. I had a fun post I was going to write for chef’s widow (an open letter to barack), but was sick that weekend and never got around to it…

    Haven’t stopped by your blog for a while… first I’ve hear that you’re pregnant! Belated congratulations. And, I wholeheartedly agree with you. I was starving for the good stuff the whole time I was pg, too.
