We have done this kind of thing before–given out free tickets to things for those who prove their smartness. But never before have the stakes been so high.
See, first off, this is Octoberfest at Brauhaus Schmitz–a thing that they do better than just about anyone. Second, what we’re offering are a pair of VIP tickets, which will get you…
–VIP Pass in and Out of the VIP Brauer Bund (PRICELESS!)
-Full wait staff and bar staff, with 5 PRIVATE bathrooms
-Complimentary Appetizers Courtesy of Chef Jeremy Nolen
-6 Tickets Good for Beer from our VIP list or Food Stands
-Commemorative Beer Stein, T-Shirt, and other Brauhaus Swag
And third, if you don’t already have VIP tickets to the Brauhaus Octoberfest festivities, this is your ONLY CHANCE to get them. Because those tickets are sold out. These two tickets are the last ones there are, which makes them, essentially, priceless.
So we’re not going to mess with you here. We’re not going to make you jump through hoops. All we’re asking is that you write us a sonnet—14 lines, end-rhymed in the Shakespearean style, bonus points for iambic pentameter, but that’s not absolutely required. Make it about Octoberfest, about food, about drinking, about dirndls–something in that realm. And make it good because there’s only one pair of tickets available, and they’re going to the winner–who will be picked by us on Thursday afternoon.
The contest begins now. It ends at 2pm on Thursday the 19th. And the party is on Saturday, September 21st.
So what are you waiting for? Get sonneting, people.
