Stowe Car Show Reminder
The Stowe antique and classic car show is this weekend. I've been seeing some great looking old cars in the area the last couple of days. Many of the entrants come up here a few days early to do some scenic touring. The show usually attracts nearly 1,000 collector automobiles.

Look for it at Nichol's Field a few minutes south of Stowe on Route 100. For more information, see my July 20 entry by going to the bottom of this page and clicking on the gold "2" to the right of where it says Page 1 of 2, and then scroll down.

1000 Cheese Tastings: American Cheese Society Convention in Burlington
The American Cheese Society Convention is being held this week in Burlington. You have to be a member of the society to attend but there is one event open to the public. Everyone is invited to the Sheraton Burlington on Saturday, August 4th, 2007 from 4:30 - 8:00 pm for a cheese tasting.

This is a rare opportunity to try "more than 1,000 handcrafted artisan and farmstead cheeses, from producers throughout North America . . . entered in the American Cheese Society's Annual Competition . . . there will be wines, beers and specialty foods that complement the stars of this event."

In addition to this event, there is the Vermont Cheese Trail, available year around. The "trail" is made up of cheese producers around the state, many of them open to the public. To find them, go to the Vermont Cheese Council's Cheese Trail page on their website. There are 37 facilities listed here with links to the companies' web sites. The ones open to the public are flagged.
