Gordon "Zola" Edgar's cheese descriptions in the fromage section of Rainbow Grocery reads like Amoeba Music's staff-selected album notes: well curated, relatable, and deliciously nerdy. But they're just but a brief tease into his recently released and highly praised memoir

Cheesemonger: A Life on the Wedge, which he'll chat about this weekend at Omnivore Books on Food.

We're not being judgmental when we say that the event will be cheesy; we hear there'll be a free tasting featuring cheese from Harley Farms Goat Dairy of Pescadero.

Event details:

Date: Sat., April 3, 3-4 p.m.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
