Spring is nearly here! The birds are chirping, the days are longer, the (supposedly, for those with yards) crocuses are earnestly poking their heads topside. Finally, after months of darkness and wind chill factors, its time to pack away those Michelin Man coats and bust out the gauzy sundresses and seersucker suits of yore.
But wait! While the (alleged) crocus bulbs have been gently napping under the frozen ground, your metabolism has been as well, swaddled in Netflix Instant and sixers from the bodega. Last August’s loose summer clothes now feel like all those sausage casings from the Crif Dog habit you picked up over the winter. As you suddenly regret that ordering that pizza, you know it’s time to hit the gym again.
It’s way too hot out there to do anything other than enjoy the air conditioning, have a few beers and enjoy Bingo with Bobby Tisdale at Black Rabbit.
BOBBY BINGO TONIGHT – 8pm!
Excellent prizes – including VIP passes to Eugene Mirman’s show at the Williamsburg Waterfront. Golden Dobber winner will be named tonight as well. Don’t miss it. What else can you do in this heat. Drink beer and play bingo!

Berry Park is hosting Musical Bingo next Thursday 3/31 – I gotta admit I am a fan of Bingo. But maybe dungeon church basements with old ladies ain’t your thing…
Musical Bingo is like normal bingo except instead of calling out numbers we play songs! Join American presenter Jess Indeedy and the ever-eclectic British gent DJ Helix as they take you on a musical tour. Cross the songs off your bingo card when you hear them, and compete to win some amazing (and kitsch) prizes! Game themes include Motown, Drinking Songs, 80s, Dance Anthems, Yacht Rock, 70s, and many more.
This addictive competition is incredibly popular in London and at the major UK music festivals, and finally we’re coming to Brooklyn! Grab your friends and come down to Berry Park on Thursday, March 30th at 8pm for a night of big tunes, huge prizes and unabashed fun. To find out more about us please visit http://www.musical-bingo.com/.
I am a HUGE fan of poker. I played for quite a few years every Friday night at a couple’s house where we had these weekly Texas Hold ‘Em tourneys with sometimes up to 15 friends. I really miss those parties with all the Brooklyn boys, beers and passing around blunts. And the poker. I miss the poker! This month Unleash is holding a Texas Hold ‘Em fundraiser and it sounds RIGHT up my alley. Facebook event here.
Join our Texas Holdem Poker Tournament – a fundraiser for Dog Habitat, a nonprofit dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and ultimately placing dogs in the right loving homes.
