Bingo nights?

Does anyone under the age of 50 go to these giant Bingo spots I drive past? They're whole buildings dedicated just to Bingo.

I saw a billboard for one near Brooklyn with a bunch of 20-somethings on it, but I don't know if that's really what Baltimore's serious bingo crowd looks like.

I kind of want to go to one of these Bingo nights as a nightlife column. But I'm curious. Have any of you guys been to one of these places?

i go to gay bingo at the hippo on wednesday nights, but i'm not sure if this is what you're talking about. if you haven't been, it's hilarious and i suggest you check it out:)


I've heard about but never been to gay bingo. I definitely need to go though.

I was actually talking about those giant bingo-only buildings you see just outside the city. Know what I'm talking about?


Not only do I work at the station, but I've worked at a bingo hall for 10 years now. ;-)

I also use to work at gay bingo at the hippo on Wednesday nights. You win less money there, but you get to drink and sing fun tunes!
