Wordfest kicks off with a — yes, it’s true — Quentin Tarantino Spelling Bee! It’s from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27, at Mother’s Brewing Company, 215 S. Grant Ave. in downtown Springfield. For age 21 and older.
If you love his movies, you have a shot at winning the contest! Consider all those characters and places and Tarantino turns of phrases. Brush up on your “Pulp Fiction” and “Reservoir Dogs,” then come out for possibly the most fun spelling bee since you beat out your fifth-grade nemesis for the top title!
