    On Thursday, from 7 to 10 p.m., Sheri LaVigne, owner of the soon-to-open Capitol Hill cheese shop Calf & Kid, teams up with Poco Wine Room's Peter Moore for a wine and cheese tasting. At the event, LaVigne will be previewing some of the local artisanal cheeses her store will stock, including Estrella Family Creamery's super stinky Wynoochee River Blue as well as Blue Rose Dairy's Black Jewels, an aged goat's milk cheese similar to a Parmesan (only milder). Meanwhile, the Washington wines tasted will include a 2008 Trust Cellars Cabernet Franc Rosé and a 2008 Poet's Leap Riesling.
