The OnMilwaukee Adult Spelling Bee is in partnership with Educators Credit Union.
The fun takes place on Friday, Feb. 25 at The Cooperage, 822 N. Water St., from 7 to 10 p.m. Doors open at 6. (Note that when we say "Adult" we mean the competitive spelling slam is open to anyone 21 years or older, not that it will include profane words.)
Tickets cost $18 and include a free Topo Chico beverage courtesy of MillerCoors and an Admirals ticket voucher (a $16 value). Plus, The OnMilwaukee Adult Spelling Bee is a benefit for SHARP Literacy.
The Adult Spelling Bee will feature 25 pre-registered spellers attempting to spell a wide selection of words with varying degrees of difficulty. And you, audience members, are invited to attend to cheer (at appropriate times), drink (at all times), participate in warm-up rounds (only if you want to) and marvel at the contestants' mad spelling skills.
Get your tickets here.
Per The Cooperage, participants and attendees must be 21, have proof of vaccination and wear a mask.
