Fancy bingo, unfancy beer (updated)

UPDATED UPDATE: Fancy Bingo is back! Every third Tuesday at Boundary Bay – event info is updated below.

UPDATE: Sadly, Glow closed in July, 2017. RIP.

What: Fancy Bingo

When: The third Tuesday of every month at 8pm-11pm

Where: Boundary Bay Brewing,  1107 Railroad

For the past few years bingo games have been popping up, generally as monthly or one-off events. Now Glow Nightclub’s bingo is a weekly event – you can get you dabber on every Wednesday.

Each drink purchase gets you one free bingo card (with three grids); you can nab more for $1 each. The proceedings are made a little weirder with “bingo lingo,” nicknames for numbers that traditionally mixes British rhyming slang and military jargon. The Glow crew’s own contributions to the lexicon include “69, dinner for two.” Alas, 68 is “dinner for one.”

Host Aireekah Laudert lovingly bundles themed prizes from sponsor merch and, in one recent game, props left behind by a bachelorette party.  Past prizes have included a Hecka Goth bag –“Quoth the Raven” incense, krampus soap, and a sweet Sailor Jerry’s tee — and the Stay at Home basket that included a leopard print onesie and a microwave egg cooker.

Fancy dress is welcome but not required – Aireekah and her accomplice Jackie Kersten (who ran bingo at the old Cabin Tavern) are fancy enough to carry the whole room.

This week’s game includes a cheap beer tasting to determine which mass-market swill is the finest. I got in touch with Aireekah to learn more.

BoT: Is this a blind tasting?

Aireekah: It’s a blind tasting! There will be seven different beers along with a sheet that tells you what beers are being served, but not in order. Then you guess which beer is which! Whoever gets the most correct wins a big prize at the end of the night, which they don’t need to be present for to win.

Also, there will be a special prize for the best description of a beer! And lots of swishing of cheap ass brews in mouths, talks of nuances, head, and legs.

BoT: Will there be palate cleansers? I read somewhere that they are an important part of a serious beer tasting.

Aireekah: We will have Glow’s regular array of tapas including cheeseballs, cotton candy, gummy worms, pretzels, and more! Did you know that Glow is Bellingham’s premier tapas bar?

BoT: Tell me why Fancy Bingo is a thing I should do.

Aireekah: Fancy Bingo is an amazing thing to do because bingo rules. We feature the best Bingo Lingo brought to you from the UK, the USA, and Glow. Also it’s an excuse to dress up like you’re going to the Golden Globes or a brunch with the Golden Girls!

And we have SO MANY PRIZES! Our sponsors include Sea Witch Botanicals, La Fiamma Woodfire Pizza, Red Boots Design, The Pickford Film Center, Comics Place, Shrimp Whisperer AK, and Glitt3r Lyfe! There’s even opportunities to win things without getting a bingo! It’s a blingo miracle every single frakin’ Wednesday.
