If your New Year’s Resolution is to eat more cheese, well, here you go. And if it’s not, well, kick rocks because we don’t need that kind of negativity in our lives. Five Crowns’ SideDoor in Corona Del Mar is hosting a cheese celebration this evening, a bi-annual cheese-feast that culminates all the best fromages from their monthly small-batch creamery cheese series. Come early for the Cheese Education Class, led by SideDoor’s professional cheesemonger, and learn all about different aging processes and types of cheese, then stay for the Cheese & Charcuterie Backyard Party to indulge in many and cheese and meat offering. Tickets to the Backyard Party also include a glass of wine; though, if you’re like us, that won’t be nearly enough.
Cheese Education class 5 p.m., $25; Cheese & Charcuterie Backyard Party, 6 p.m., $65. 21+.
