We are so excited for Laramie’s Chalk ‘n Cheese, located in Historic Downtown Laramie at 209-211 S. 2nd St. (Yes, you read that right – walk through the lovely brick archway between the two buildings for lots of gourmet yumminess + antiques!) Cyndi & Misty, the two energetic & fun-loving owners of Chalk ‘n Cheese, were the recipients of the latest retail liquor license awarded in Laramie, and they are putting it to fabulous use! Starting in March 2016, enjoy Meat & Cheese Platter Nights, PLUS W ine Flights, where these two lovely foodies will assemble a scrumptious tasting for you! These nights will fall often on Thursdays & Fridays, but also stay tuned for their special events such as full, multi-course dinners and CHARMED events (which I can’t spoil the surprise on those, they must be experienced to understand!).

Be sure to spin by and check out their array of fine wines & liquors for sale, including many Wyoming-made brands. They have creative ideas for cocktail pairings, and can help you find the right combinations you’re looking for!
