From Cheesemonster Studio:

Cheesemonster Studio is thrilled to announce its grand opening on Thursday, April 11, at 713 Kennedy St. NW. Cheesemonster was established two years ago as a mobile catering company by cheesemonger Alice Bergen Phillips. The brick and mortar location is a partnership between Bergen Phillips and beverage veterans Hilarey and Brian Leonard of Lost & Found and Free State bars.

The cozy space includes a full service catering prep kitchen for its signature artisan cheeseboards, cafe seating for 20 for cheese and charcuterie boards as well as wine and beer service Thursday-Saturday evenings 4-10pm, and space for private events and classes.

All of our products are carefully sourced from producers with whom Bergen Phillips has created lasting relationships over the years, and will feature local options whenever possible. The Leonards will be adding a robust seasonal beverage program with by the glass and bottle, as well as craft beer and non-alcoholic options.

The Studio is also a venue for local cheesemongers and beverage professionals to gather and deep dive into aspects of the industry they feel passionately about sharing with customers and each other.

Finally, being a part of a neighborhood community is very important to the concept. Creating a place for neighbors enjoy exceptional food and drinks with their friends and family is of the utmost importance. The team looks forward to being able to contribute in a positive way to the community.

Cheesemonster Studio is available for off site catering, in Studio private events, wine, beer and cheese classes on or off site, and will also curate classes open to the public.

Karen joined the Well-Paid Maids team as a cleaner in January 2021, and she was recently promoted to an operations manager! This well-deserved promotion is part of Well-Paid Maids’ effort to deliver better customer service with responses to phone calls and emails seven days a week.

To celebrate Karen’s promotion, we caught up with her to learn more about her time at Well-Paid Maids, the area’s only certified living-wage cleaning company.

 1. Why Well-Paid Maids?

Karen: I saw the company was paying a living wage and had great benefits. Also, they were very flexible with my schedule, especially since I have kids.

The Potomac Roasting Company is stocked with excellent coffee to meet almost any palate. But that’s not the only good news. We now offer free shipping for orders over $35.

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality beans sourced from small farms in Latin America and Africa that are owned and operated by women. We will make sure that your coffee is roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

Our newest coffee comes from Mbozi, Tanzania. We secured a shipment just before this small batch of delicious beans sold out. In Swahili, Usawa means balance and Kahawa means coffee. The beans are grown on small farms that are part of a cooperative promoting gender equity and market access for women. This is a smooth and balanced coffee that is sure to please.

We also received coffee shipments that were delayed following the tragic collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. That includes the most recent harvest of La Morena coffee beans from Huehuetenango, Guatemala. We have plenty in stock, so that you can stock up! Rounding out our specialty coffee choices are fresh roasts from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia and Peru.
