Gay Bingo is returning this year in full force. From January to June - on the third Saturday of each month (except in May when it's on the fourth Saturday) - Lifelong AIDS Alliance will be putting on massive bingo competitions (with usually 750+ individuals in attendance) at Fremont Studios. Gay Bingo is sponsored primarily by MOMS pharmacy.
One can expect to see representatives from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Abbey of St. Joan, fabulous entertainment and emcees, guest callers/announcers, revealing costumes, and of course, prizes.
Each month will have its own special theme. On January 16, "Boot Camp Gay Bingo," on February 20, "Racy and Lacy Gay Bingo," on March 20, "When in Rome Gay Bingo," on April 17, "Biker Babe Gay Bingo," on May 22, "Blue Hair Gay Bingo," on June 19, "Beach Blanket Gay Bingo."
Costumes are encouraged for Gay Bingo, but not required. Costume contests, with prizes, will be hosted by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and will be held at each bingo tournament.
Gay Bingo, now in its 17th season, is designed for experienced bingo players as well as those new to the game. One ticket will buy ten games, each with $100 cash prizes. VIP tickets, colorfully nicknamed "Queen for a Day" tickets are also available. Gay Bingo includes a full bar, proceeds from the bar go to Lifelong AIDS Alliance.
Special Games, which aren't included with the general admission price, can also be bought into. Some special games are $2 to play, others are $4. Special games have up to $1,000 prize packages.
This year Gay Bingo is moving to the Fremont Studios, 155 N. 35th St., and a full bar will be available.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m., bingo begins at 7:00 p.m. and ends between 9:30 - 10:00 p.m. Gay Bingo is a 21+ event. For more information, or to make a reservation, visit www.gaybingoseattle.com. For questions, call the Gay Bingo hotline at (206) 323-0069 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
