The art of mastering language and appreciating it during the process is a vital part of any human being’s intellectual and psychological development. The existence and popularity of the Slurring Bee is proof of such; once a month, word-nerds congregate for a friendly spelling bee competition, made more fun by everyone’s favorite social lubricant, alcohol. This month, the Bee pairs up with Wordplay, the non-profit organization offering free programs to help children explore their creativity through writing and literacy. Pregame for the 9 p.m. Bee with a silent auction, cocktail specials and other fun stuff. The winner receives Mayday gift certificate, a placement in next spring’s champion tournament and a highly coveted bee-themed costume. $8 to compete (half of the fee goes to Wordplay). 7 p.m. Mayday Northside, 4227 Spring Grove Ave., Northside. maydaynorthside.com.
