Best Gay Game - 2008
Don't know who'll be there when the roll is called up yonder...but here's where lots of folks will be when their number is called down here. Gaybingo is the silliest fun you can have on the third Saturday of the month. This long-running hit is one of Dallas' hottest GLBT events. Hosted by drag divas Jenna Skyy and former Miss Gay America Patti LePlaeSafe, this ain't your Maw-Maw's bingo, although she might be there in the crowd of hundreds whooping, hollering and hooting. Recently relocated to posh digs in the Rose Room, this high-octane game night features polished production numbers, full service bars and chances to win prizes and cash. Lavish themes are announced in advance, and attendees are encouraged, though not required, to participate. Careful not to break rules or throw 'tude lest you find yourself at the mercy of the BVDs: Bingo Verifying Divas, the fierce drag queens who keep order as they roll through the crowd on inline skates, tossing one-liners and insults. The event also benefits the Resource Center of Dallas, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the GLBT and HIV/AIDS communities. Tickets go quickly, but if you get in—Bingo!—you're in for some outrageous fun.
