Drinking Spelling Bee
posted May 16, 2017 12:49 PM   RSS

Last time we went to the Drinking Spelling Bee was fun! Wow, was it over a year ago? Let's do it again!
Every Saturday at 7 pm at the 331 Club in Northeast Minneapolis. One free beer on the house; another free beer for every correctly spelled word. Winner gets a $25 bar tab and possibly a T-shirt maybe.

Proposed date: June 3 (three weekends from now) or later.

I'm a maybe right now on this. I'm waiting to hear back from a friend on doing something that day. Will let you know!

Could be fun and a way to exorcise the demons of my fifth grade spelling bee where my overconfidence led me to lose in the first round by forgetting the second 'e' in 'sincerely'.

The following weekend would be better for me but I can probably make the 3rd work.

ooh, I'm in! I haven't been to the spelling bee before and the 331 is just a few blocks from my house. Also I won my 4th grade spelling bee but nowadays I can drink like at least a 7th grader.

Do people have preferences between June 3 and June 10?

10th would be a no for me; the 3rd is a strong maybe [volunteering at an event out in Minnetonka during the day; no idea how long that'll end up running]

I can neglect my responsibilities for one night if the 3rd works best for everyone else.
