Come on down and bring the mister, Canuck! I'm sure by the time we have the next bee the "vitaminwater social club" will have changed its name to something less embarrassing.

Ok, I'll bite: what's a "vitaminwater social club" and why do I want to give them money?

@7, it's a "concept" from Coca-Cola, owner of Glaceau, maker of Vitaminwater, which is inserting itself via sponsorship into the young-ish marketplace via dollars and 'edgy-style blogs' promoting places like local all-ages venue Vera Club, who can't afford to say no to the bucks and free promotion.

They've taken over this other local neighborhood place where the Stranger decided to let the spelling bee happen for Slog, which has done a good job covering the lengths to which sodamakers like Coca-Cola are playing dirty to fight off the proposed budget-saving soda tax in this state.
