Over the Weekend: Dean's on Fairview, Boheme, Lola's, House of Blues, Rockets, Aeros and Bingo
We'll get to the usual ogle-friendly galleries here in a sec, but we just wanted to talk about bingo real quick. Yep, bingo. In particular the action at American Legion #586. We went there yesterday, looking for fun. We bought some cards and plopped down. A couple of nice older women even helped us figure out the different games. All was right with the world. We learned about New Friend Number One's deceased husband and how New Friend Number Two has had everything she ever wanted in life but a diamond ring.
Then some woman at another table tells us we could maybe learn better if we quit talking so much. This prompts Number Two to tell her to pipe down. But then Number One slams her palm on the table and tells Number Two to shut the hell up. We had no idea what was going on, but within five minutes Number One is mumbling something about shoving a gun in Number Two's mouth.
True story. And don't get us started on what happened once they thought someone had called bingo too soon. We almost witnessed a riot.
Anyway, on to much calmer endeavors.
