Sometimes, there is Justice: Help us pick our winner

Later this morning, we'll reveal the location of the Justice League of Street food party that will get in gear at 6 p.m. Saturday, August 21.

But in the meantime, you can help pick the winner of our party package.

On Monday, we asked readers to come up with a new version of the Green Lantern's oath that would work for the Justice League of Street Food -- seven local gourmet truck and cart entrepreneurs who've banded together to celebrate food and fun. The best oath wins the party package, a ticket to get the goods at all seven vendors Saturday night.

Here's the original oath:

In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might, Beware my power, Green Lantern's light!

And who deserves the prize for their version? You can read all the entries in the comments section here; feel free to add a vote for your favorite.

New oath entries will be cut off at 8 a.m. this morning -- and we'll reveal the winner this afternoon.

But even if you don't win the contest, you can still join the party on Saturday. Admission is free, but vendors will be selling their snacks, and a cash bar will be pouring Great Divide beer and Infinite Monkey Theorem wines. Read more on the Justice League's Facebook page.
