It's Bingo, Bitches!



My winning card!

LOL, I'm famous, sort of.

Instead, it's the carefree atmosphere that keeps the clientele coming back for more. Regulars know the bartenders by first name and laugh at the bingo-caller's bad jokes. Groups of friends huddle over the numbered slips of paper in booths with worn, wooden tabletops. And when somebody yells "Bingo!" the ones who haven't won toss their cards in the air in a flurry of good-hearted catcalls and "boos."

"It's just our twist on it," said bingo caller and DJ Tony Carreras. "It's not as high-stakes, and it's a lot more fun."

I am actually in this article, but I am unnamed! Dammit!

And yes, this is how I spend my Thursday nights......

(sorry about the weirdness of not being able to link directly to the Courant. Blog is doing some weirdness...)

Your "local" sounds like a fun place.

I tried to fix it, but couldn't, annoyingly. Thanks for the heads up!

Oh, hahahaha, that picture was not in the paper, so I didn't notice it was on line.

Yeah, dude was TOO SLOW.

Hey, I know that woman!!! Hee!

This is very cool, Kim. It looks like you were having an awesome time. The Half-Door seems like such a great pub.

Yay for your getting to the front first.

"Hey, dude, when you snooze you lose! Especially when Kim's around!"

I should have knocked him over with my cane.

(he was MUCh younger than me, can't believe he was so slow!)

Heh! Listen up, youngun, you'll have to pry MY cane from my gnarled knuckles (say that three times fast) before you can knock anybody over!

Use the Iludium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator. More efficient.

Damn, man, I was looking forward to going tomorrow and racking up a shot or two...

Cheers, albeit slightly less cheerful for the time being,
the guy on the pub who recognized you from your blog

Sorry, Kim! I did wonder if this would happen. I mean, the afterschool program I used to volunteer for had to pay for a permit to host an annual family bingo fundraiser, and heaven forbid you actually wanted to hold a raffle or such! Pretty ridiculous.

So ANGRY.
