More of the same here, including the very uncomfortable white kid asked to spell "negus":
Come on out to the next Williamsburg Spelling Bee on Monday, February 6th. Winner gets a gift certificate to Vine Wine, which we are certain will improve your spelling.

Looks familiar, right? This is our new friend Vine Wine at 616 Lorimer St.
Talitha from Vine is standing up for spelling by providing gift certificates to the first place winners for the next three bees! So come on out to the next bee!
Monday, February 6
The Williamsburg Spelling Bee
Pete's Candy Store, 709 Lorimer St., Brooklyn
(Lorimer St. between Frost and Richardson / L or G train to Lorimer)
From "broccoli" to "triskaidekaphobia," come test out your spelling in a bar backroom filled with smart people and beer. Free, open to all (21+). Signup begins at 7pm -- first 18 people get to play. Three-strikes-you're-out policy means more participation for everyone. Hosted by founder bobbyblue and comedian Jen Dziura. Winners get nerdy prizes and qualify for the annual Finals.
Spread the Word: We always need prize sponsors. Stand up for spelling!
p.s. As befits a Williamsburg wine store, Vine is open until 10pm, so you actually could even stop in after the bee.
