SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – A San Francisco bar is serving up the unusual combination of free flowing alcohol and spelling bees, and the results have been i-m-p-r-e-s-s-i-v-e.
“This is probably the single most popular promotion we’ve ever put on. And we’ve all been astounded by how huge this one in particular has gotten,” said Cafe Royale co-owner Will Weston of the Drunken Spelling Bee.READ MORE: Rain Showers Trigger Power Outages Across The Bay Area
‘It’s a cross between people drinking to their heart’s content and spelling to the best of their abilities and when the two of them meet it either has catastrophic or heroic results,” he added.
There is a $20 fee to play, and you get to drink as much as you want until you’re knocked out of the competition.
“We’ve got that upstairs mezzanine and those rafters will be full of people watching people spell,” Weston said.
