Cheeseboy plans grilled cheese giveaway
Ice cream giveaways are so ho-hum these days --- the Hub has been awash in them lately. But a free grilled cheese sandwich? Now that's something worth tying on the big-boy bib for and busting out a wide-mouth ketchup bottle.
As culinary cognoscenti know, April is National Grilled Cheese Month, and Cheeseboy, a small Boston-based chain of food kiosks, does not wish to let such a high holiday of haute cuisine go unobserved.
And so the chain says it is gearing up to give away freebies of its signature entree --- the Cheeseboy Classic --- on Sunday afternoon from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The chain's mantra? "The best things in life are cheese." On Sunday afternoon, the mantra du jour for hearty chowhounds and trenchermen may well be, "The best things in life are a free grilled cheese sandwich."
Cheeseboy has two Greater Boston locations --- at South Station and at South Shore Plaza in Braintree. No purchase is necessary, but there's a limit of one per customer, Cheeseboy said. (The photo with this post was taken from the Cheeseboy website.)
So what's the appropriate wine choice to accompany a Cheeseboy Classic? May we recommend a South Australian Yard Dog? True, its nose is a trifle frisky, but its texture and heat should complement a grilled cheese sandwich nicely.
