An unlimited-meat fest for the sheepish

This is the song that doesn't end… unless you're Lamb Chop, in which case you'll be joining your homeys Shank, Shoulder, and Loin at PDX's inaugural Lamb Jam, where a herd of local chefs will go hoof-to-hoof for a ewe-nique baaah-cchanalia featuring endless booze, endless lamb, and ideally not-endless sheep puns.Your ticket gets you unlimited samples of slow-cooked, skewered, fried, fire-roasted, braised, and roasted lamb from 15 local chefs repping such joints as Wildwood, Brasserie Montmartre, The Heathman, Pazzo, and Pacific Pie Co., work working with everything from legs and breasts to less-sexy, more-prisony shanks. And yes, there's a dude actually named Patrick Lamb plays jazz.As those chefs compete for a trip to NYC for the national event, they'll also have jerky and charcuterie on offer, while Country Cat's Adam Sappington will butcher a whole lamb before your virgin eyes, and you take down unlimited wine and craft beer from Breakside, Ninkasi, Full Sail, and Double Mountain, enough of which will have you going on and on my friend...
