Cheese Festival '10

Last weekend my friends and I went to one of my fave Seattle festivals - The Seattle Cheese Festival at Pike Place Market. And the weather made it all the better, Saturday was an absolutely gorgeous day; blue, cloudless skies, Seattle sun, and plenty of free cheese to go around!

This festival is comprised of vendors from all over Washington that bring their fresh cheeses to be sampled. The Pike Place Market corridor is brimming with fresh cheeses for the tasting, from bleu cheese to Gouda to Manchego and beyond...it's AMAZING!

My friends and I had a great time. We bought fresh baguettes at Le Panier to accompany our cheese selection, and popped into the wine tent for some vino as well. All in all - a great day out with the girls!

One of the best combinations ever to be sure - cheese and wine.

I just tagged you in a post on my blog. It's a good excuse to vent. Wanna play along?
