Cheese: good. Bread: good. Grilled buttered bread encasing gooey cheese: heavenly. Yep, it's The 7th Annual National Grilled Cheese Invitational . You get to taste and judge the competitors' standout sandwich to your artery's content. The competition, from what we're told, is fierce, and tasters have been known to get territorial for their faves. I know who I am rooting for, and it goes something like this:

When you're a jack, you're a jack all the way.

From your first little curd to the cracker, hooray!

When you're a jack, you're a Monterey man

Not a Swiss nor a Brie, not a Camembert — see!

When you're a jack, you stay a jack!

Location announced on April 20 after presstime (ooooh, the suspense).

Sat., April 25, 1-5 p.m., 2009
