Saturday July 16, 2011: 1st Annual Sharky Rib CookOff followed by Live music from The Teaner Terners supported by the Las Vegas Knock-Outs

Wow, were we surprised at the size of the turnout for Sharky’s first BBQ Rib Cook Off Competition which brought about 60 meat hungry attendees to sample Barbecued Ribs from 10 local Entrants. Surprisingly enough, 7 Bar/Restaurants and 3 individuals all cooked their hearts out and presented their culinary skills which was judged by both a Panel of 4 Professional Chefs and also judged by a “People’s Choice” on which Ribs were the most outstanding.

Of course, this was all done in a Blind Tasting environment where no one but Big Al, the organizer of the Event, knew which number Rib Box came from which Chef.

The Judges Table was segregated from the People to prevent any interference or “inside information” on the choices.

It was quite the event as each Contestant’s ribs were served in 5 minute intervals and passed around the Bar for all to enjoy, comment, critique, etc. on sheets which were given to all of the attendees.

Rather than repeat what was reported in the up and coming popular Food Blog, Nyam Penh , please go here: for a complete report. Nyam Penh is run by Vinh Dao who reports on local restaurants on a regular basis

Vinh’s blog will now be linked into Sharky Bar’s Blog and please click on top for Vinh’s spot on comments and beautiful photos of each Contestant’s Ribs and the Results of the Judges Panel and of the People’s Choice.

Sharky Bar would like to thank the Judges for their time and effort in coming over to give their professional opinions on the Ribs and also thank all of the Contestants as well as the foodies who attended and ate and ate and ate until the last meat was picked off the bones of each Rib.

The Judges were:
Jay Steed – famous local Food Connoisseur
Mark Idle – California 2 Guesthouse
Merv of the new restaurant “The Lost Key” (formerly “Talking to a Stranger”
Lanzi – Dan’s Meats

Thanks so much Gents for making Sharky’s Rib Cook Off an enormously fun and mouth watering event. We’ll be doing this Cook Off on an Annual Basis and follow our Blog for the next Food Event at Sharky Bar !

JUDGES CHOICE: 1st Place Winner - Ebony - Congratulations!

PEOPLES CHOICE: 1st Place Winner - Rusty Keyhole Kampot - Congrats Christian!

later that night....

The 'Teaner Terners' returned to Sharky Bar & Restuarant on Saturday Night with their own particular brand of Indie style rock with full support from special guests 'Las Vegas Knock-Out.'

The American boys (KC + Dale) were up first with their take-on West-Side American grunge/punk rockers ' Social Distortion.'

Considering they were only passing through from Bangkok, they made a big impression with the Sharky crowd.

The vocals and guitar work were spot-on and the set ended with a rousing guitar version of Johnny Cash's 'Ring Of Fire' - Sx-Dx style of course !

Great stuff from 'Las Vegas Knock-Out' and a big thanx to Dom and Mikkel for helping them out on drums and bass.

Hope to see them back, the next time their over from Thailand (their currently playing Pattaya).
Good musicians and real cool dudez too !

The stage was set then for Indie Rockers 'Teaner Terners' to take the stage and once again they didn't disappoint.

A set comprising 'new and old' material was the perfect tonic for the healthy Sharky throng who nowadays seem to know most of the band's songs.

'Typhoid' , 'Dark Art' , 'Superlative' , and 'Analogue' are now standard 'Terner' gig songs but they still sound exceptionally good.

Scotty was on fine-form upfront, and his explanation about Jimmy's 'Goldfish' on that same song was quite funny.

However, the boyz are not afraid to experiment with 'Stephen Hawkings' being a case in point. 'Traffic Light' was another were the 'lyrics' were quite innovative.

The night finished with a reggae version of 'Superlative' which brought the 'Terners' fans a wry smile and concluded another fine performance by this vastly improved band.

With the addition of more bass lines (primarily from Jimmy), this allowed Scotty and Lance more opportunity to expand on their, often quite melodic and intricate guitar work.

Yes, a great evening from the boyz - and with 'Busking' and 'I'm The Eighties' ringing in my ears - I bid you all good night !

It's been a great weekend - courtesy of 'The Lazy Drunks' , 'Las Vegas Knock-Out' and 'The Teaner Terners' !

Thanx to you all !
