The Curd Convention + Mike Geno Happy Hour

APRIL-STUDIO-EVENT-IMAGEFriends in Philadelphia, I have two book events for The New Cocktail Hour this month for your calendars: the Curd Convention (April 10) and a special Happy Hour at Mike Geno’s painting studio (April 23rd). Please read on for details!

The Curd Convention (April 10)

This Sunday marks Philadelphia’s first Curd Convention — part of the Philly Farm & Food Fest . Held in the Pennsylvania Convention Center, this is a great chance to meet local makers, snack on samples, press the flesh with the lacto-rati, or chat goat breeding. Tickets are $20, with an additional $10 charge to get into the Libations Lounge. Here’s where I’ll be:

noon-1 p.m. “Will Travel for Cheese” talk and sampling with with Anna Juhl of Cheese Journeys and Sue Miller of Birchrun Hills Farm. Come try Sue’s clothbound cheddar!

1-2 p.m. I’ll be signing cocktail books!

3 p.m. Join me in the Libations Lounge, where I’ll be making a “Greensgrow Mule” — a mostly local cocktail, featuring Bluecoat Gin, paired with local cheeses from Weaver’s Way Co-op. Cheesemonger Matt Buddha will talk dairy and pairings, and together we’ll show you how to create a patio cheese board. (Note: advance sign-up required at the Libations Lounge entrance; limit 30 seats).

Happy Hour at Mike Geno’s Studio (April 23rd)

Painter Mike Geno is throwing open the doors of his studio to sell prints at a discount (cheese portraits for Mother’s Day!) while I sign books. Stop by for happy hour from 4-6 p.m.

We’ll have light refreshments, courtesy of Vermont Creamery and Rowhouse Spirits.

Studio Address: Viking Mill Studio building (2nd floor), 2026 E. Hagert St., Phila, PA 19125
