So U Think U Can Spell? adult spelling bee in conjunction with Politics and Prose Bookstore

November 10, 2012 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Why do kids have all the fun? We’re having an adult spelling bee for anyone 18 and older. Come participate; come watch!

SPACIOUS is excited to partner with our favorite bookstore anywhere, Politics and Prose, in upper northwest DC, for this first bee, which we predict will become an annual event.

Stefan Fatsis, prolific author (including Word Freak about the competitive Scrabble world) and NPR regular, will host us. Peter Sokolowski, lexicographer and Editor at Large at Merriam-Webster, will be our pronouncer and adjudicator.

There will be drinks should you need lubrication of your spelling facilities. As at all SPACIOUS events, there will be an emphasis on meeting someone new.

We’ve signed up a portion of our contestants ahead of time, and then we’ll be collecting names of wanna-be contestants from 7:30 to 8 that night, announcing at 8 which have been randomly chosen, and then we’ll get started after a bit of mingling and preparation.

Competition, drama, laughs, prizes!
