Could you be this year's lucky limerick winner on St. Patrick's Day at Shamrock Pub in Sarasota? HERALD-TRIBUNE ARCHIVES

It's time again for Ticket's coolest contest of the year and the best part? It's easy and the grand prize is a trip for two to Beer Circus Chicago on May 18! Just write an awesome limerick and upload here (read all the rules, too, please) starting Thursday (Feb. 20).  The top 5 limerick writers will read their limerick before a panel of judges – plus an eager and probably inebriated audience – at The Shamrock Pub St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Sarasota.

TKTLimerick2014Bradenton's Have Gun, Will Travel (check out my Ticket cover story on the band) has been touring the country in support of its  superb new Americana album "Fiction, Fact or Folktale?" But on March 17, the band will return home to headline a special St. Patrick’s Day bash at Shamrock Pub in Sarasota. HGWT is scheduled to start performing at 7 p.m.

Music starts inside at 2 p.m. and outside at about 3 or 4 p.m. Our limerick contest reading will is at 6 p.m. with City of Sarasota Pipe Band playing at 6:30 p.m. Andy Thomas, Ship of Fools, Passerine, Sons of Hippies, Hail Dale and Big Blu House also scheduled to perform.

Local DJ RaeF will entertain in between acts.
