Last Saturday I went to cover a Cheese Ball! Which makes you think of those nutty balls of cheddar cheese from Hickory Farms we eat at Christmastime. This however, was a party where everyone brings cheese to sample or a spread for cheese or something to spread the cheese upon.

It can also definitely mean, I'm going to be giving out free Philly Cheesesteaks with Cube tomorrow at Max's and Jim's! I so wish he'd given me this scoop to run with, I could have been blowing up on social media! ...
