If you're an artist, or just so inspired by your love of Pabst Blue Ribbon that you need to express your feelings somehow, it's not too late to enter the PBR Art Contest (this is one of the images you'll find on the website).

Four Grand Prize winners will receive $1893 in cash and one year of PBR. Four runners-up get exactly $631 and 4 months worth of beer.

Entries are being accepted in four categories: painting, photography, sculpture, and poetry.

A PBR logo or beer can has to be part of the painting or photo entries.

The sculpture entries "must be constructed primarily of Pabst Blue Ribbon packaging including empty cans, empty bottles, cartons or other packaging. An additional secondary material may be used as support or framework."

And the poetry "should be a written piece of no more than 250 words that captures the spirit of the PBR brand."

To enter the contest (or just to see some cool art), go to the PBR website. Deadline is Dec. 31.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
