Next Tuesday, November 30, at Brooklyn Bowl, a very short walk from the Bedford L stop in Williamsburg, comedian Eugene Mirman, Soulico, The Sway Machinery, and a whole lotta Jews looking to start Hanukkah off right will be bowling and partying at JDub Records’ Festival of Strikes, co-sponsored by Tablet Magazine.

Wanna go? Wanna go for free? We have a few pairs of tickets. so howsabout we have a Jewish bowling haiku or limerick contest? Write your favorite Jewish-bowling themed haiku or limerick, and either leave it the comments; Tweet it @tabletmag; put it in the Facebook comments of this post; or email it to dklein@tabletmag.com. We will announce the winners (who will be able to pick up their tickets at the door) and, of course, publish their poems next Monday.

Oh, and top this:

One chef made his latkes with butter,
Using no oil, like some sort of nutter,
The potatoes did fry,
But I can’t tell a lie,
The result went straight to the gutter.

Bowling similes count! (And a Hanukkah reference is not required.)
