331 Club[masked]th Ave. NE.
Did this one back in December and it was a hoot. It seems silly, people going up and spelling words, whopteedo. But like so many things in life, when you add a little alcohol, you get a whole new perspective. Add to that a clever MC, and, well let me put it this way, how often can you get drunk, laugh at people, and it's ok?
This is a small venue and the last one was crowded. I plan to get there about 6:00. If I drool and snarl enough, I should be able to scare squatters away and hold a table.
Note that this is the same venue, but they have new hosts. Here's the old write-up. I'm not sure if they still have an underwear round, but I hope so.
Never for the faint of heart, the Grown-Up Spelling Bee features hilariously-themed spelling rounds, awesome prizes, free beer for contestants for each correct answer, and the world-famous Underpants Round. Don't miss out on the only event in the Twin Cities with enough guts to combine spelling and imbibing in one raucous, scandalous evening every month. Registration begins at 6:30 PM and the spelling begins at 7:00. It's not just entertaining - it's an incredible deal! An $6 registration fee gets spellers a free Summit brew with every successfully completed round in the Bee.
No charge if you're not playing. No free beer either.
