Write a Limerick by March 17th, Win Tickets to Rhone Rangers

Annual Rhone Rangers Tasting in San Francisco is certainly one of rhonerangers.jpgJust a reminder, folks. You have until March 14th at Midnight to write a limerick about Rhone wines, which is your entry ticket to a raffle of tickets to the Rhone Rangers tasting that's coming up here in San Francisco on March 25th.

Come up with a limerick, and you'll get a chance to win a free ticket to the grand tasting. I'll pick two names out of a hat from those who enter. Here's a refresher on the rhyme form:

There once was a wine from the Rhone
Who hated to be all alone
He dreamed of recitals
With multiple varietals
And so he got Chateauneuf on the phone.

Take your best shot by March 17th (why did he choose that day, I wonder?) and we'll give away a couple of tickets.
