From Globe staffer June Wulff:

This Saturday from 3 to 4 p.m., after your chores and before you settle down to
watch the Olympics, you can head to the nearest Whole Foods Market and watch
cheesemongers demonstrate the art of simultaneously breaking into 85-pound
wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano wheels. This is an attempt to break its own
world record from 2008. Guinness World Records confirmed that Whole Foods
Market, in its first attempt, set a record for "Most Parmigiano Reggiano Wheels Cracked Simultaneously," with almost 300 wheels opened at 176 stores. Official tools will be used -- five different kinds -- for this "parm cracking" and of course there will be tastings. www.wholefoodsmarket.com.
