Wordsmiths that we are, it’s painful to admit that we’ve only once managed to lay down all seven Scrabble tiles: “Look, everyone: O-R-I-E-N-T-A-L!!!” But the giddy sense of achievement that followed those 27 points has kept us in the game ever since, despite the rejection of all our alternative spellings and two-letter words.
So, if your middle name is “Noah Webster,” tonight’s your night. Head to the Red Stag for Speed Scrabble, $3 domestics and $4 Crispin Ciders, and enjoy the clickity-clack of tiles on the Hasbro board as the music of Millions Billions play in the background. The game begins at 10 p.m. Can you eke out a V-I-C-T-O-R-Y?
