Have plans to better yourself in the New Year? Here's a fun way to do just that: Interstate Kitchen & Bar, 901 West 10th Avenue, hosts the Rock 'n' Roll Spelling Bee tonight and every Monday, starting at 10 p.m. Unlike traditional spelling bees, this one lets you write down the words, rather than spell them aloud -- all while sipping $1.50 Lone Stars (no cheating!). The Spelling Bee play takes place in the bar/lounge area, where there will be rock and roll and blues music to set the mood. For more info, call 720-479-8829 or go to www.interstaterestaurant.com.
