Mother Nature is No Match for Cheese
Snowed in, Rubiner's says 'bring it on.'
GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — There are two things you need, and I mean need like a baby needs its momma, to get through a winter like this one.
The first thing is a good pair of boots (for a recommendation on winter gear see my recent gear blog).
The second is a good sense of humor, a very good sense of humor. Maybe even a little sick, too. The kind of humor that, when someone asks you in a blinding snowstorm how you're doing, you just smile and say, "I'm freakin' great. It's downright balmy out here. Love this weather."
Then you trudge down the street headed for the nearest gun shop.
So, it is with this same sense of winter humor that Rubiner's Cheesemongers is having an "F' Mother Nature Sale." Yeah, you heard me. If you go to Rubiner's Tuesday and mention this particularly morbid sale you can get 20 percent off your entire purchase. And what better excuse is there to risk life and limb in a blizzard than cheese? Glorious, rich, creamy cheese from all regions of Europe. And chocolate, specialty meats, gourmet candies and great latte just around the corner at Rubi's.
I returned home this evening with a half pound of Belloc, sopressata and a baguette. It's going to be a great night.
No offense, Mother Nature.
