Jamaican Jerk Cook Off

When: Mon., May 30, 12-5 p.m. 2011

Do the Memorial Day barbecue one better with Linden Street Brewery's (95 Linden St., Oakland) Jamaican Jerk Cook-Off, which places local chefs (and a crapload of spices) in front of a panel of high-profile judges - including Sarah Kirnon, executive chef of Hibiscus; Christopher Grant, sous chef at Ana Mandara; Pamela Ong, formerly of Bay Wolf; and special guest Horatio Sparkes - for an all-out jerk showdown. The $10 entry fee covers either wine or beer and a jerk tasting, and all proceeds go to the My Yute Soccer Camp, which provides free soccer instruction to local kids. Monday, May 30. Noon-5 p.m.

Price: $10
