ANTONELLI’S CHEESE SHOP: CLASSES & DATE NIGHTS Yes, we’re telling you about these events at Austin’s favorite cheese shop early because 1) they’re so damned fun and informative and tasty, and 2) they – because of the previous reason – tend to sell out in advance like whoa! So start prepping your fun-time schedule this year for the likes of Cheese 101: The Seven Styles of Cheese (Jan. 8), Cheese Date Night (Jan. 10 & 24), Soft Cheeses and Bubbles (Jan. 11 & 22), and that much-buzzed-about Cheese-y Bus Tour (Jan. 26).

BUH-BYE, LIBERTY LUNCH! People always say, “Too soon!” But, so, is this too late? We think not. We think if Independence Brewing Company wants to throw a sort of wake for the beloved Austin club that closed in the Nineties – if they want to invite citizens to attend while dressed in their best duds from those halcyon days, to try to win the costume contest and enjoy $3 pours of Liberty Lunch brew on tap – then we’re all for it. Note: Of course, Indie Brew, ol’ pals, we are expecting a follow-up Les Amis farewell party now … Sat., Jan. 12, noon-9pm Independence Brewing Company, 3913 Todd #607, 512/707-0099. www.independencebrewing.com
