On a visit to Scardello's website, you'll be welcomed with a cheesy quote like, "Cheese is the biscuit of drunkards" (Grimod de La Reyniere), so it's only fitting that they should be the fromagephiles you turn to when you need cheese advice for the biggest party of the year. In preparation for your New Year's festivities, take the advice of the wise cheesemongers st the artisan cheese shop as they spill on which cheeses go best with the bubbly in this week's Cheese and Bubbles, a one night only class 7 p.m. Thursday at Scardello Artisan Cheese, 3511 Oak Lawn Ave. Classes are $30 per person; reservations are required.
