Top Chef Masters: A haiku to get you in the mood

| No Comments

And then there were three -- Rick Bayless, Hubert Keller and Michael Chiarello.

The money is on Chicago's boy Bayless to take it all in tonight's finale of Top Chef Masters. NUP_133881_0344.jpg

Bayless has been up to his glasses Twittering and blogging about the show. And what timing -- he is getting ready to open his new project, Xoco, a churros/tortas/chocolate joint on the southeast corner of Clark and Illinois. City inspectors were just there this week checking out the place, Bayless says.

About 80 people are expected to descend on Frontera Grill tonight for an invitation-only viewing party. Among them will be the winners of Bayless' clever haiku contest, staged via Twitter and his blog.

Read the winning haikus here. Even more entertaining: the losing ones (with the stray limerick thrown in - good luck, perhaps?)

Here's the No. 1 gem:

Cow walks into Bar
Says Nothing. Bartender asks,
What, Rick Got your tongue?

The episode airs at 9 tonight on Bravo.
