Geek Week Spelling Bee
Housing Works’ Bookstore Café (126 Crosby St., Manhattan)
From “broccoli” to “triskaidekaphobia,” relive or redeem your grade school humiliations, but with beer! A real, grown up spelling bee hosted by Jennifer Dziura and bobbyblue of the famed Williamsburg Spelling Bee. Everyone gets a “freebie” (first word you miss doesn’t count!), so you can relax and have some geeky fun.
