Free Doggie Treats Courtesy of Emily Luchetti

Speaking of Emily Luchetti, she’s now providing complimentary treats to pooches who are hanging out on the Waterbar patio in San Francisco with their two-legged owners.

The free dog biscuits are made of whole wheat flour, peanut butter, milk and oats.

Meantime, dog owners should be sure to show up between 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. everyday for $1 oysters and $3 beers.

Jamaican Jerk Cook-Off

Jerk chicken aficionados will want to head to Linden Street Brewery in Oakland, noon to 5 p.m. May 30, for a “Jamaican Jerk Cook-Off.”

Jerk Masters will compete to show whose cooking is the jerk-iest. The event will benefit My Yute Soccer, which organizes Bay Area youth soccer camps.

The $10 entry gets you two tickets, with each ticket good for one beer, one wine or one jerk tasting. Admission is free for kids 12 and younger.

    I enjoy your post on the food scene and think the people who follow you would love know about a twist for a local charity! On July 24th Roy’s will host our fun Charity Chow Down Hot Dog Eating Contest for the Make a Wish Foundation

    Anybody, men or women are welcome to enter the Charity Chow Down. Proceeds from the Hot Dog Eating contest are to be donated to the Make a Wish Foundation of the Bay Area. Our goal is to make every child’s wish to come true!
