Richmond's Corner Hotel has just the tonic for your boring old Tuesday nights in August — and if you guessed that it's giving a game your nan probably plays a musical twist, then that's a bingo. At Bin'go Your Own Way, you don't just wait for someone to tumble a sphere of balls, pick out a number and make a bad joke. Instead, Dan Watt plays bits and pieces of songs and asks punters to match them to the ones listed on your bingo card.
Running from 7.30pm on August 7, 14, 21 and 28 in the venue's front bar, each week has a different theme — so if you've got bingo fever and want to head along more than once, you're more than catered for. The first week will ponder the concept 'decade', followed by a session on genres. Next, comes a Hottest 100 night, before rounding out the season with bangers and karaoke tracks. Yes, we're guessing there'll be singalongs.
Folks able to both face and match the music will win prizes that include jugs of beer, bottles of wine and something else special (although, lets face it, winning booze is an incredibly fitting reward). Tuesdays also now happen to be the Corner Hotel's new cheese night, so there'll be plenty of cheesiness from a number of sources.
