Spelling Bee Approaches

From the deeply creative and productive, Matthew L, I am reminded that it's time for an important ritual:

Spelling Bee Monday!

Fifth Anniversary Competition!

Not About The Buildings' biggest event of the entire year is less than a week away. Yes, folks, it's once again time to revisit your childhood glories (or traumas) at the Not About The Buildings Spelling Bee, held once again at AS220 (115 Empire Street). This year marks the fifth anniversary of the bee, so we think it's going to be a big one!

It costs $8 to spell but it's free to watch, so bring a cheering section. Signups start at 8:30 and once again we are limiting the number of spellers to 36. There are no advance signups, so you'll need to be punctual if you'd like to spell. Once the spellers are all signed in and lined up, the bee should start at 9.

As always, you are also encouraged to support the folks on stage (and your own interests) by betting on the winner. There are fabulous prizes in store for those who gamble on the winning speller. Funds from Monday night go directly towards supporting Not About The Buildings for the rest of the year, so the more money we make, the more programming we can do. And since Not About The Buildings will be turning five in July, we'd like this year to be bigger and better than ever.

Prizes this year have been generously provided by the likes of the Providence Athenaeum, Tiny Showcase, Craftland, and more!
