If you thought Memorial Day was all about veterans and remembering fallen soldiers from past wars, well, guess again. Up in West Palm Beach, the Jamaican community has planned a large fete this Monday dedicated specifically to good music and jerk cuisine. You can get jerk chicken, jerk pork, jerk ice cream (yes, ice cream), and a variety of other jerk-related dishes to keep your tongue nice and warm. If you're not familiar with "jerk" spices, it's essentially a spicy Jamaican style of preparing food; you should check this event out to get indoctrinated. The daylong festival is reasonably priced, and while you're between bites of jerk cuisine, there's a bunch of reggae music scheduled as well. Performances by the Fab 5 band, Frankie Paul, and everyone's favorite reggae comedian, Professor Nuts, are slated, and a few local artists may sneak on the bill as well. This event is sure to be tasty — and there's lots more to eat than just jerk food. If things get to be too hot, here's a tip: Drink milk. Water makes things worse, but a nice glass of leche will cool down your mouth lickety-split.
