Spelling + Alcohol = Slurring Bee at the Pinch this Thursday

by Robyn Mincher

Spelling’s tough. Especially with free Jello shots. Show up, sign up, drink up, spell up or screw up and flex your intellectual muscles while verbally trampling through words such as GLADIOLUS, ALBUMEN or ESQUAMULOSE (ok, those are winning National Spelling Bee words—ours will be a bit easier).

20 contestants will battle it out to see who can out-spell and out-slur their way to become the first-ever Slurring Bee champion—making spelling the new spectator sport.

Drink specials will be included and encouraged to keep up with those onstage.

Hosted by Bill Metzger, with difficult words read with no difficulty by Robyn Mincher.

Sign up takes place between 7-8 p.m. For more details, visit https://www.facebook.com/events/191762781002417/
