Best Place to Test Your Lactose Intolerance 

Cheesemonger Invitational

You may think you like cheese, but enter the Cheesemonger Invitational at your own risk. An event that describes itself as a "Fight Club meets Wrestlemania of cheese," the Cheesemonger Invitational features the country's best duking it out while you bask in dairy decadence. Not only will you get to sample some of the competing mongers' fine work, you'll also have the chance to taste offerings from the best cheese vendors in the world. If that doesn't sell you, there are fondue stations, charcuterie, a drunk guy in a cow costume yelling things, and open bars. You also get to experience the majesty of watching masters break down wheels of cheese in record time, a feat everyone should witness at least once.
