The first 100 cheesy-looking people to arrive at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach this Saturday will receive free admission. What's "cheesy-looking," you may ask? Honestly, not much: just wear the brightest, most-retina-searing orange imaginable (I'm looking at you Broncos fans). This stunt is sponsored by Tillamook Cheese's second annual Loaf Love Tour, a cross-country trek dedicated to "bringing tasty cheese to the people." Its signature Loafster convertible VW bus will make stops around OC and LA from March 5 to May 14.
And if you don't want to wake up early to see fish, at least go later to get your cheese fill: Tillamook will hand out free samples of the stuff all morning.
Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA) is actually a cooperative of 110 dairy farming families that started in 1909. Aside from that mouth-filling creamy chunk of cheddar we all associate the company with, it also makes other cheeses, ice cream, butter, sour cream and yogurt.
