Tonight, local luminaries such as NFL Hall of Famer Roger Wehrli, musician Ralph Butler, Rams quarterback Marc Bulger and St. Louis Blues left winger Keith Tkachuk join emcee Joe Buck in a battle of the wits to benefit local children in need. Bee at the Pageant (6161 Delmar Boulevard) at 6 p.m. sharp for the V-I-Bee reception where you can swarm the appetizer tray and buzz about the celebs.
