Bingo Loco Rainbow Rave
Rave bingo is rolling in town — and this time, it's hosted by Sabrina Babyslut and coinciding with Mardi Gras.
Thought bingo was for your nan? Think again. It's also for you — or perhaps, if she's a groovy gran, for the both of you. Hijacking the traditional format of bingo with raves, conga lines and lip sync battles, Bingo Loco is 50-percent one of those strange dreams you get after eating too much cheese and 50-percent just a walloping good time.
This isn't Bingo Loco's first time in Sydney; however, when it returns on Saturday, February 27, it'll do so as part of a new Bingo Loco Rainbow Rave event. Time to coincide with Mardi Gras, this one-off will let Sydneysiders dance and celebrate in a COVID-19-safe way, all at the Enmore Theatre.
Sabrina Babyslut will be playing host, while confetti showers will go off throughout the night (perhaps wear your glasses). Bingo ravers will compete for ultimate glory (and prizes) over the course of multiple rounds. In between the traditional bingo games, you'll be expected to groove to classic 90s rave bangers, partake in dance-offs, and battle others for lip sync queen titles. Basically, be prepared for many high-octane, energetic activities — gone are the days of simply raising your hand when you've got a full sheet of numbers. Doing your stretches and vocal warm-ups first are advised.
You'll vie for prizes, which in the past have included Coachella tickets, boats and cars, among other goldmines. Bingo Loco has been running across the globe for a few years and now will trumpet its way around Australia once more, with proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation Australia.
Tickets are on sale now — by the table, starting at $296.60 for four people and going up to $724.80 for ten people.
