Christmas Minnesota Haiku Competition Results!

December 7, 2011

We had a wonderful Minneapple Happy Hour this past Friday with lots of folks in attendance at Kabin in the Lower East Side. In addition to more than 6 different kinds of holiday bars enjoyed by all, we had an ugly/awesome sweater competition and our usual brand of drinking, merriment, and MN-thusiasm!

My favorite part of the night was the impromptu Haiku competition led by our wonderful hosts Tara and Mishka – the prompt was “Write a Haiku about the winter Holidays in Minnesota”.

Although some folks aren’t too good at counting syllables (or writing their names on their submissions!!), I think the results are truly heartwarming, and I’m happy to be able to share them here:

Firewood burning, snow falling,

Vikings on the tube,

Lutefisk on the table.

~Nick and Nikolai


You betcha Lefse,

Hot buttered lutefisk,

Uff da yum yum yum

~ Mary and Maria from Augsburg!



Covered in snow, so damned cold,

warms my frosted heart

~Jay & David


Josh Hartnett and Prince spooning,

Jesse the Body,

Hanging with Goldy, sexy

~Nick & Nikolai


Blinking floats go by

Look out, look out, look out, crash!

Holidazzle fail


Holidazzle strut

Cold snot freezing to your face

Stop bitching and wave

~Alicia and Whitnae


Caribou coffee

Hot dish with cousins gathered

Matt’s juicy lucy!


Red green tattoo tot hot dish

Grand old creamery ice cream

Spam bites for night cap


M O A mad dash

I bought too many beanies

Now the log shoot ride


Snow sweaters no more

Because new yorkers are weak

Minnesotans rock

~Gemma and Dawn


Minnesota is

Ice fishin’ on frozen lake

Cold balls don’t ya know


Warm in the fire’s glow

We approach the midnight hour

Northstar lights the way

~B-town Represents


Snow falls softly down

Christmas delights now await

Granny’s bars warm us


Going to florida

Presents no longer matter

NYC, I’m out!


Oyster stew simmers

On the stove my ma yells ‘hey!’

I go to the bar


Batteries are dead

Tires frozen to the ground

Lutefisk saved me


Thanks again to all participants and attendees! I always have such a great time meeting all of you. Also, it looks like we’re going to be changing things up around here a bit come 2012, and if you’d like to get involved in keeping Minneapple in the Big Apple alive and well, shoot us an e-mail!

Much Love,

Admiral NorthStar
