"There Once was a Filet From Dublin..."

Posted By on Wed, Mar 10, 2010 at 1:46 PM

From the incredibly generous contest department comes this dispatch from your friends at Jimmy Kelly's Steakhouse. On their website they are inviting fans to submit a humorous limerick, which will be voted on by the public.

  • Summon your lucky ladybug and shamrock and enter Jimmy Kelly's limerick contest.
At their annual St. Patrick's Day celebration on March 17, the winner will be announced and he or she will win (get this), a trip for two to Dublin and a private tour and tasting at The Old Jameson Distillery, maker of Jameson Irish Whiskey. Airfare and lodging is included, but the lucky poet must provide ground transportation.

As of this week, there were less than twenty entries. Contestants must make a $5 donation to a Haiti relief fund organized by Jimmy Kelly's, but that's still a pretty strong cost/benefit play considering the odds.

It sure would be great to see a Bites reader win this thing! I'd enter myself, but now that I've told all of you about it that would be kind of sketchy. You can go vote for your favorites here, but if you rhyme "Kelly's" with "bellies," you've lost my vote.

Remember, five lines = two plane tickets.

Go get 'em!
