Haiku Competition: Win Two Tickets to Newseum Nights!

Pinterest Google+


The Newseum hosts some killer parties. This week, they’re celebrating the Olympics in a Rio-themed bash, complete with Brazilian food, an Afro-Brazilian band, and sports-themed games. Plus, there’s an open beer and wine bar. What more could you want?

Admission usually goes for $40, but FamousDC got our hands on two of these golden tickets for free. We’ll be selling 1,000 chocolate bars and hiding the tickets in two of them… just kidding. We’re hosting a Twitter competition to award two of our awesome readers the tickets. All you have to do is tag us (@FamousDC) and tell us what you love about the site. There’s a caveat, though: you have to tell us in a haiku.

Haikus are poems that have seventeen syllables in total. The first line has five, the second has seven, and the last has five. It does not have to rhyme, but that would be a nice bonus.

For example:

“@FamousDC is

The best thing in the whole world

Yes, it changed my life.”

Casual compliments, you know? Tweet us by Tuesday night at 11:59 p.m., and we’ll direct message the winners with links to the tickets. Here are the event details:

Date: Wednesday, August 17

Time: 7-10 p.m.

Where: The Newseum (555 Pennsylvania Ave, NW)

May the best haikus win!
