Do you like Scrabble? Do you like drinking? Do you wonder why that breath mint you were sucking on after last night's round of drunken Scrabble tasted so horrible? Now you can take your playful inebriation public and make triple word scores into triple slurred scores! Every Thursday evening for the foreseeable future is the official Scrabble Night at Deyermond Books, bookseller Michael Deyermond's sequel to the late, great Equator Books in Venice. There'll be music, snacks and a more cerebral level of flirting than usual. The winner gets a store gift certificate, which means you may not have to salivate much longer over that fragrantly mildewed compilation of the best of Al Goldstein's Screw Magazine. And every time someone challenges that word you've laid out with all those silent Q's, everyone takes a drink!
