Brace yourself, 'cause bingo is back.
Well, almost. All you players who clamored for cards at Jackalope Ranch's inaugural bingo night will be happy to know that we're making a comeback and hosting four -- count 'em -- bingo bashes at Crescent Ballroom throughout August.
And we've got a few fun surprises this round . . .
Every Wednesday in August from 8 to 11 p.m. we'll be gaming in the ballroom. Big time, we know. And we have the hosts to prove it.
Arizona's hip-storian Marshall Shore will reprise his starring role as host on August 7 and 28, bookending the month of play. (You'll have to attend if you're curious whether that troll-adorned jacket will make another appearance.)

Phoenix artist Sarah Hurwitz has created a set of 200 bingo cards for each evening, and the venue will have tables throughout the ballroom so folks can take a seat as they vie for prizes including food and drink vouchers, gift cards to local businesses, and concert and theater tickets.
Play will be divided into 45-minute increments, followed by 15-minute breaks, when players can leave, join in, or grab a cocktail. RSVP for one, all, or a few of the game nights via Facebook.
