Not Your Grandma’s Game of Bingo

By: Dana Ragazinskas

It’s bingo time! We can’t think of a better way to spice up your Mondays than with a few games of bingo. As you already know, It’s a Local Thing never brings boring or conventional to the table, so check this out!  Hamburger Mary’s, located in the heart of Andersonville, holds a weekly charity event that they like to call “Hambingo.” This is not your ordinary game of bingo, we can tell you that much! Besides the host being a drag queen, there is also a “halftime performance” of local drag queens showing off their entertaining talents. If you have kids, leave them at home, because things tend to get a little wild and crazy on Hambingo nights!

Your Host & Locals at Hambingo!

Bingo cards are $5 each, and all proceeds collected from the cards will go to the charity chosen for that week. Charities have ranged from animal rescue associations to HIV/AIDS organizations. You can also recommend a charity of your own by contacting Hamburger Mary’s through their website. Buy as many cards as you like, and your cards are good for all games throughout the night. They also have $5 margarita specials and food! On their menu you will find hamburgers (I’m sure you saw that coming), nachos, soups, salads, sandwiches, and the list goes on.

So if you’re looking to have a not so ordinary Monday night, while doing something good for the charities of our city, hop on over to Hamburger Mary’s and prepare for a fun filled night of bingo! Hambingo is held downstairs in their dining room, beginning at 8pm, and lasts about two hours. This isn’t your grandma’s game of bingo, so get ready for a silly and outrageous night of Hambingo!
