For sheer uninhibited fun, you cannot beat the music bingo night at my local.
I must say that it was a quiet start, but gradually more people got the word and flocked in to the best show in the local area.
The host makes it fun, inclusive and enjoyable and easy to play. If you know your music, then so much the better. I must say that I struggled a little tonight, as some of the modern hits totally stumped me. I’m more of your 70s and 80s kind of music lover.
There’s also that mistress called superstition. She played a fantastic hand tonight, with something called the “Winners Table”. It’s a table that has seemed to produce a big full house winner, every fortnight I’ve been down there. And tonight was no different. Two ladies parked themselves at said table, and 2 and a half hours later, rake in £150. Not bad eh?
I managed to win too. But it was only a free shot from the bar. It was red in colour and quite foul tasting. But I downed it in one, as you do, and got back to business.
Tiredness was taking over towards the end. I think five vodka and tonics may have something to do with it. But it was a stonking night. The communal singing was something to behold, as well as a pub regular dancing to the song Proud Mary, one of which I have never heard in my life. She went down a storm with the punters. But I still don’t know what the song’s about. Sheltered life I suppose!
A truly great night, and I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
