Roast it, grill it, bake it, or fry it: There are many ways to enjoy klobasa — the Slovenian spelling of kielbasa. The region's best klobasa vendors will gather at SNPJ Farm in Kirtland from 1 to 8 p.m. today for the eighth-annual Slovenian Sausage Festival, handing out samples of their scrumptious links and vying for the title of "best sausage maker." And what's a Slovenian fest without polka? Canada's polka king, Walter Ostanek, is set to fill that void. Tickets are $7 online or by phone from the National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame; admission at the gate will set you back eight bucks. — Barnes 11000 Heath Rd., Kirtland, 216-261-FAME, polkafame.com.
