Drag Queen Bingo in the Village - Le Bingo with Linda at Le Poisson Rouge SO MUCH FUN
I first heard about "Le Bingo"
on, of all places, NPR's "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me!" during a round of "Bluff the Listener" regarding what hipster trend was bringing some old lady entertainment back into vogue
. And as it happened, I was on my way to NYC not long after, so there I went to Le Poisson Rouge in the Village
for my first night of Le Bingo. I had so much fun, it's exactly where I went straight off the bus from Boston last weekend, when I went to New York to read at a poetry reading series
I didn't win any prizes. (So sad, as there's some real marvelous ones! -- see Doughnuts below.) But I did win in a sense, as did everyone in the audience, since our host Linda Simpson and her assistants provide such hilarious, glamorous entertainment. Not to mention the drink specials! $4 fire whiskeys, vodka sodas, tequila (I stayed away from that one) and Abita Red Fish.
|Win! BINGO Wow!|
|I didn't win with this cursed cards!|
