Bingo leaps into the 21st century with Instagram Bingo at Will's Pub

Tuesday, July 31 – Instagram Bingo

9 p.m.

Will's Pub

1042 N. Mills Ave.



We know what you’re thinking: An echoing, tiled hall full of retirees with a monotone emcee hollering “G23” over a screeching loudspeaker. But erase that image from your brain, because for this night, the game of bingo leaps into the 21st century. The letters and numbers traditionally associated with bingo will be replaced with your friends’ Instagram-filtered snapshots – meaning, of course, Earlybird-ed pics of children, X-pro’d photos of cats and dogs, and last night’s meal savored in Kelvin’s orange hue. And since bingo is nothing without refreshments, the bartenders at Will’s Pub will tap a keg of Cucumber Saison from Tampa’s Cigar City Brewing. Rules are simple: Fill your bingo card and you win a beer. Raise the stakes and make it a drinking game (it’s encouraged by event organizers), and you might find yourself inciting a rousing chorus of “B-I-N-G-O” – ironically, of course. – Aimee Vitek
