Consuming obscene amounts of cheese has got to be up there with reality TV and butter churning as one of America’s greatest past times. Step into your favorite Mexican restaurant and you’re bound to eat something slathered in queso. Grandma’s mac and cheese is a perennial Thanksgiving favorite. And who can resist the allure of a delicious, gooey cheeseburger?
But where do you go if you have a need for the more refined cheeses in life? The Cheesetique, of course. With a name like that did you expect them to sling anything but the finest of dairy products? By day the Cheesetique serves as a specalized grocery store serving up all sorts of excellent wines and cheeses. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and will offer up free samples of any cheese you happen to cast your gaze upon. By night the Cheesetique transforms like Optimus Prime into a wine and cheese bar perfect for a first date…unless your date happens to be lactose intolerant. You can get any number of hefty sandwiches to appease your appetite, or order up a platter of cheese and drinks to share. Just be careful not to scarf down one of the stinkier cheeses unless you plan on ending your night early.
