Per write-up Jan 27, 2005 -
Where: 1 W. Eager St.
When: 8:30 p.m.-11:30 p.m. on Wednesdays
Why: Because this is one of the most entertaining (and possibly most profitable) ways to spend a Wednesday night. For $15 you can play 25 games of bingo at this hip Mount Vernon bar. A few weeks ago, one contestant took home $2,400. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Baltimore. Roughly $45,000 has already been raised.
Information: Call[masked] or visit www.clubhippo.com.

So you see, not only is this fun - possibly profitable - but! Even if you DON'T win - you win, because you are helping raise money for a very worthy cause.
Also, the caller is in drag. This AIN'T yer Grandma's bingo, THAT'S for SURE. C'mon down, we'll have a blast.
