Humboldt's Spam Sunday

You can make delicious looking dishes with Spam, apparently! 

If your mind is open and your stomach empty, then head on over to Redwood Fields on Sunday for the Spamly Cup Cook-Off. There, top chefs from a variety of local restaurants will compete to most adequately convert you to believe in the potential of the infamous canned meat product. Here’s the capper: All proceeds will benefit Humboldt CASA’s work to advocate for local foster children.
