Win Free State Fair and Chinese Lantern Tickets

If you were to come to the D Magazine offices, and if you needed to void your bladder, and if you are a man, then this is the sight that would greet you in our downstairs bathroom. The bull shark that once used those choppers was caught by Bernie Kraft, a really cool guy who used to work here and was killed by cancer at far too young an age. That’s how we remember him, with a shark jaw above the urinal (and with a conference room and a biannual employee performance award named after him).

So then. Best caption wins four tickets to the State Fair and four passes to the Chinese Lantern Festival, which I hear is pretty cool. That’s $120 worth of tickets (Fair is $16, Lantern is $14). Contest ends at noon on Monday. Winner can either pick up the tickets at our downtown office, or I can mail them. But remember: the Fair ends October 21.

  1. In memory of Bernie Kraft, a great shark in the magazine business. Piss your respects and flush.

  2. “Ehh…. the sashimi wasn’t that fresh… D magazine recommend a great place down the street….”

  3. Some pretty good submissions, folks (and some really bad ones). Our winner, by unanimous vote, is Chris Dinsmore: “That gives new meaning to the phrase Potty Mouth.” We’ll have some more tickets to give away this week. Stay tuned.

  4. I love that you are keeping the memory of my uncle Bernie alive…. employee recognition awards, urinal decorations, etc. He was a great man! Thank You!

    My suggested caption “Urine my way!”

  5. WOW……only Bernie Kraft could keep his bull shark around for years! Could it be because he always was full of BS….oh sorry I mean Bull Shark! Miss him every day! He was a one wonderful man and one amazing loving father!!! Love and miss you daddy, Kimberly
