I had a lot of banter with excellent host Adam about my name. They give you a free beer, which I didn’t take. Host: “But Bri is an anagram of Beer!” Me: “Not the way I spell it, it’s just B-R-I.” Host: “Bri is an anagram of… IRB!” Someone else “Rib.”

This is the *NEW* spelling bee that happens at the Someday Lounge once a month on the 1st Tuesday. Every time you spell a word right, you get a can of Tecate. There were 10 spellers. I was in the top 5 when I got out. Robert got 2nd place. The guy who won spelled bildungsroman without blinking.
