Leave it to the hipsters to find a way to make bingo, one of the squarest games known to man, cool. Somehow, they have managed. The only grandmas to be found here at Tuesday night's gig at 331 are the rowdy kind. Come early for $2.50 drink specials between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., or order up a half-priced bottle of wine until 9 p.m. And if those little numbered ping-pong balls align in your favor, you will be taking home prizes that play off of the "bling" in Blingo: Rapper-style medallions, sparkly chalices, and other fun prizes are typically coveted by game players. Chill out afterward to some bluegrass tunes from the Como Avenue Jug Band. Blingo is also found some nights at the Triple Rock Social Club and the 501 Club. (Image by jurvetson)
