"S-P-L-N-G....uhh" — try again there, hombre. Spelling is clearly harder when you've been drinking, especially when you're on-stage and competing for your bar tab. The first Monday of the month, Elbo Room hosts a buzzed spelling bee complete with speed rounds, shot rounds, and more that'll have you tongue-tied between laughs.

It's free, so all you have to do is show up at 8 p.m. sharp and be one of the first 30 people to sign up. If you normally get a little stage fright, a few drinks will help loosen you up — but be careful, because misspelled words will get you the boot.

Sound it out under the influence in this alcohol-infused competition.

The winner gets a $50 bar tab. PBR gear will be provided to all participants!! Show up with your A-game and be prepared to spell quickly and accurately through the haze of $3 PBR tall boys.

First Monday of the month: 8 p.m.
