Just in time for Mardi Gras, enjoy the fruits of a gumbo cook-off between pros and amateurs at a benefit for Chefs for the Marcellus on February 19 at Jimmy’s No. 43. They’ll be using ingredients from the Marcellus Shale region as they raise money to protect the area from hydrofracking for natural gas. It’s $20 at the door for unlimited tastings and a cash bar.

If you’re not already Linsane from hearing “Lin” added to every possible word in the English language, perhaps it’s time to take your Lin obsession to another level. Eat a curried pork sandwich with jalapeños, aioli, and pickled daikon-carrots named after Lin at BaoHaus — “The Taiwanese Te-Bao.” And bask in the restaurant’s alleged shrine to the NBA superstar while you’re there.

Lower East Side: The bricks at 151 Rivington have been writhing with renovation lately, upstairs and down. Above ground, Japanese restaurant Yopparai is set to open this week, replacing Sushi Uo, which shuttered December 2010. Down below, progress inside basement bar 151 is so on-the-down-low, all we know is that it’s returning under the same owner after the fix-up. [Bowery Boogie]
Midtown: What can stop top-notch canine diners like Malachy the Pekingese from standing on tables at Sardi’s and devouring plates of chicken and rice? Nothing, it turns out. The traditional doggie dinners at Sardis for the winner of the Westminster Dog Show will be allowed to commence after the health department commissioner signed a waiver to undo a DOH declaration that they would have to stop. [NYT]
On the Move: Feel like chasing your dinner? The Korilla BBQ truck will be at Union Square at 5 p.m. and Luke’s Lobster at Brooklyn Brewery later tonight. Or stalk ’em all yourself.
Soho: For two days, the presses runneth over with gooey grilled cheese, as the cream of New York’s panini crop competes for the crown of best sandwich in the city. The Big Cheese returns February 25 and 26 at OpenHouse Gallery to celebrate New York’s most uncelebrated comfort food — tickets are $25, but submit your cheesiest joke for a chance to go for free.

Times Square: After its lid was shut for weeks without explanation, that little yellow sign has reared its head on the inside glass of the Snack Box. The DOH shuttered it back on January 30 for 66 violation points. [Midtown Lunch]
