Here's a way to spend your Saturday: Murray's Cheese is staging a mass melting tomorrow in locations across 11 states. Murray's signature fondue will be up for grabs, alongside beer and wine pairings. The dipping is scheduled at all area Murray's counters, including Capitol Hill's Broadway Market QFC from 2 to 6 p.m. The famed NYC-based specialty cheese chain began opening outlets at local QFC locations earlier this year.
If all that cheese demands a cocktail chaser, Linda Derschang's buzzy new bar Bait Shop just happens to be a 60 second walk from QFC in the former Bako space at 606 Broadway E.
In other news, Bluebird Microcreamery (and nanobrewery) is exchanging toys for frozen treats. From now until Tuesday, customers donating an unwrapped item to Toys for Toys will score a gratis scoop of ice cream. The offer is valid at Bluebird's Fremont, Capitol Hill, and Phinneywood locations.
