Charcuterie and Cheese Half Off at Tap 79

Tap 79 has a crazy good deal on artisan cheeses and cured meat Thursdays from 7 to 9 p.m. Usually you can mix and match eight for $40, but on Thursdays the price is half. That means for just $20, you can have your pick of manchego, triple-cream Brie, Gouda, pecorino, Parmigiano-Reggiano, Gorgonzola, and cabra al vino with prosciutto di parma, truffle mousse pâté, soppressata, speck, jamón serrano, cantimpalo, chorizo palacio, and coppa siena (limited to eight total). However will you choose? Any combination includes artichoke and truffle mousse, as well as fig jam and marinated olives. Get yo' cheese on. Maybe have some beer while you're at it.
