'Austin Chronicle' Adult Spelling Bee

We don't mean "adult" as in pornographic (although there is a lot of drinking, so who knows?); we mean "not for kids." Two rounds of spelling tests separate the real spellers from the wannabes before the finalists take the stage to show off their skills. Words of advice: Beer helps the brain. That's what our mother always told us, anyway. The money goes to our public libraries, so don't feel bad when you hear that ding. You should watch this video of a previous event to prepare. Thu., May 22. Registration open 5-6pm. Tests start at 6:15pm (2014). $5 to participate.

Threadgill's World HQ, 301 W. Riverside, Austin
