Write a haiku or limerick about ginger & win a ticket to Ginger Explosion II!

When Aaron Cohen of Eat Boston suggested a ginger-themed event for last year’s ArtsUnion Winter series, we leaped at the idea. The thing is, we love ginger. We even trade ginger on the stock exchange (Reed’s) and write haikus about it in our spare time…

your fury tastes so sweet

in a snap, curry or beer

oh bulbous rhizome

…but back to Aaron. His event last year—a bit like an Iron Chef contest with ginger as the common ingredient and the audience playing judge—was a huge success. So we’re doing it again! Read about Ginger Explosion II here, along with other upcoming ArtsUnion events. The ginger event takes place Wed., January 26. Tickets cost $13 (a fundraiser for ArtsUnion) and they’re selling fast so get tix here soon: Ginger Tickets. Or let ginger be your muse and send a haiku or limerick to rachel@somervilleartscouncil.org by Tuesday, January 25; use “Ginger Contest” for a header. A jury of ginger junkies and experts will select the winner.
