MKE Underground is a series that focuses on the grittier aspects of life in Brew City. In respect to younger readers, OnMilwaukee will publish these sassier stories after 9 p.m.

No, it’s not that kind of contest. Geez, people, get your minds out of the sewer. This contest is all about a different kind of meat … jerky!

"This event was created with a couple of guys, drinking some beers and talking about their love of jerky, so we decided, what the hell, let's give it a whirl," says event organizer and bar manager Heidi White.

The event takes place on Sunday, Feb. 26 from 1 to 5 p.m. at The Standard, 1754 N. Franklin Pl.

Participants can dry or smoke jerky from any kind of meat, but it must be made from scratch – no store-bought jerky allowed. They must also make enough for people to sample.

To sign up for the contest, go to this Facebook page and leave a comment for White or Standard co-owner Steve Gilbertson.

As White says, "Who doesn't love jerky?"

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.

As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.

She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that. 

Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.

Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.

In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!

When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
