Language is often depicted as an art form and on this night we are going to celebrate just that.

You will have a chance to showcase your spelling prowess. Andrea Stokes will be MCing an adult spelling bee. We assure you each and every time has been a blast, you won't want to miss out on all the laughs. No, you don't have to stand up in front of the audience. You can come as an individual, as a pair or compete as a team. There will be several rounds and at the end of the night one speller/spelling team will be crowned Supreme Spelling Champion(s). 

In addition to the adult spelling bee, adorning the walls will be 26 different pieces of letter art produced by 26 different artists. Each piece will be sold for $50 and all of the proceeds will go directly to the artists.
