In the Cards

Jackalope Ranch's first-ever bingo night was such a smashing success we ran outta playing cards. This month, armed with three emcees, 200 cards created by Phoenix artist Sarah Hurwitz, and a load of prizes from local businesses, the culture blog brings weekly bingo to Crescent Ballroom, 308 North Second Avenue.

Seriously. The last event was so big, this month's had to be moved from the lounge and into the ballroom, where tables will be set up for players to take a seat and take a chance at winning things like gift cards, theater tickets, and snack vouchers redeemable at the club. Play will be divided into 45-minute chunks, between which players can leave, join, or grab a cocktail. The one and only Tania Katan will take the stage on Wednesday, August 14, from 8 to 11 p.m. The funny folks from Torch Theater are on the mic August 21. And Arizona's resident hip-storian Marshall Shore will close out the month, reprising his role as original host, on August 28.

It's free to play. For details, visit www.crescentphx.com or call 602-716-2222.
