Scrabble is fun. Words with Friends is more fun. The Slurring Bee, though, out-funs them all. What word game could possibly beat a real-life spelling competition centered around free shots in one of Cincinnati’s hippest, danciest Rock n’ Roll Bars (bonus: they serve gourmet hot dogs)? Nothing, that’s what. Logophiles and bold bar-goers alike can join in on this friendly competition, and even if you don’t want to compete, liquor + spelling = quite the spectacle. Here’s how it works: Pony up $5 to compete and you’ll receive your first shot. Spell something. If you get it right, you’ll move onto the next round — for each round you conquer, you’ll receive another free specialty shot. Will the slurs keep you from achieving “queen bee” status? $5 to compete. Every third Thursday. Mayday Northside. 4227 Spring Grove Ave., Northside. 513-541-0999, maydaynorthside.com.
