. May 14, 2012.

Woodruff’s / Wednesday, March 21
In a world where automatic spell-checking and brazenly abbreviated texts have tarnished the traditional art of the spelling bee, 826michigan celebrates the craft of cheating. Two-person teams of 826michigan staff and volunteers, UM professors, local businesspeople and politicians will go head to head and underhandedly outwit, out-spell and out-cheat each other for an Almost Embarrassingly Large Trophy For First Place. The teams raise money for cheats like “Ask the Audience” or “Try Again.” All proceeds go to 826michigan’s creative writing programs. 7pm. $12 advance/$15 door. Woodruff’s Bar, 36 E. Cross St., Ypsilanti. 734-761-3463. www.826michigan.org
