No, it’s not a community making jam out of Spam (but maybe that will make it on the schedule next year)—the Waikiki Spam Jam celebrates all things Spam with food trucks, merchandise, crafts and entertainment. (Fun fact: “Spam” came to mean junk mail because of a Monty Python sketch, in which every item in a diner unavoidably contained Spam.)  On the menu this year?

Free, May 3, 4–10 p.m., Kalakaua Avenue, spamjamhawaii.com.
