Is “Play Bingo with a Drag Queen in Sacramento” on your bingo card this year? You’re in luck.
Here in Sacramento, we love drag queens, we love games, and we love any excuse to combine the two. That’s why our city is home to not one but three drag queen bingo events. Each one promises a night of laughs, prizes, and plenty of sass.
If you’ve been wanting to experience the excitement of a drag show in an entirely new way, look no further. Grab your game card, your dot marker, and cash for tips, then we’ll see you in Sac.
Every first Thursday of the month from 7-9 p.m.
The event that started it all is Drag Queen Bingo, presented by the Rainbow Chamber of Commerce and hosted at Mango’s in Midtown. For $20 (cash only), you’ll play 8 rounds of bingo hosted by the boisterous and bawdy Do Me Moore. You’ll also have access to delicious food and drink options and Mango’s atmospheric indoor and outdoor seating. The Rainbow Chamber selects a different nonprofit beneficiary for each event, so every dollar you spend is supporting a local cause. Past beneficiaries have included the LGBT Community Center, the Sacramento Gay Men’s Chorus, Front Street Animal Shelter, Gender Health Center, and more.
Every Thursday from 7-9 p.m.
Do beer, bingo, and apples go together? They do now! Join host Apple Addams at Flatstick Pub every week for cold beer, delicious food, and prizes. You can play all rounds of bingo for $5 or increase your odds with extra game cards for $1 each. If you show up early, you might even have time for a quick game of tipsy miniature golf to get you into the competitive mood.
Every Saturday from 7-9 p.m.
Since you had so much fun with Apple Adams on Thursday, you’ll undoubtedly want to see her again on Saturday. This time, you’ll catch her at Two Rivers Cider, where you can play for even more prizes while sipping on a seasonal cider. Entry is donation based, and Two Rivers is an all-ages venue, so feel free to make it a family affair—but keep in mind it is a drag show, so parental discretion is advised.
