It's time to dust off your leather jackets (or chaps, perhaps?), wipe them down with Lexol, and head to the Hyatt Regency. HIV/AIDS charities need you. Bingo A-Go-Go is taking over the downtown hotel for biker bingo, surely the campiest of all bingo games to be found anywhere in the Twin Cities, with fabulous prizes and cold hard cash at stake. For $35, players decked out in Harley Davidson duds will compete in 12 rounds in addition to costume contests to raise money for Clare Housing, which provides safe dwelling for HIV/AIDS patients, and Park House, which offers physical and mental health services for patients. For bikers looking for a fancier bingo experience (I can't believe I just typed that), VIP tickets are available for $125 and include valet parking and an appetizer-and-cocktail reception before the action gets started. If you get tickets ahead of time, be sure to show up by 6:45 p.m. because unoccupied seats might be sold. To purchase tickets go to www.bingoagogo.com/bikerbingo.html or call 612.236.9527.
