The Krewe of Red Beans hosted a red bean cookoff with internet voting in a tournament bracket playoff (www.redbeansnola.com). The original 57-team field was narrowed to the "Final Fork" at press time. They included chef Cedric Lewis and the restaurants Joey K's Restaurant & Bar, Ma Momma's House of Cornbread, Chicken and Waffles and The Old Coffeepot Restaurant. The final two competitors meet each other in the championship 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. April 7 at the Southern Food & Beverage Museum (1504 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., 504-569-0405; www.natfab.org). Attendees can vote for their favorite red beans dish. There's music by Margie Perez's Muevelo and WWOZ-FM's DJ Alsky. Proceeds benefit Anna's Place NOLA, which provides summer activities for children, and Make Music NOLA. Beer is included. Tickets are $15-$50.
