Anyone who has relegated the game of bingo to a boring activity for nursing homes residents clearly hasn’t met a drag queen. Carmella Marcella Garcia, Miss Carol Lee, Miss Angel Sheridan, Miss Addison Taylor, Trixie Deluxxe and Sabin flip that stereotype on its head weekly at Five15’s Drag Queen Bingo.
Now, you can enjoy the show at a discounted rate, with a Groupon for 36 percent off regularly-priced tickets for $26.
Attendees aged 18 and up are welcome to reserve spots Thursday through Sunday for a comedy show that holds nothing back. But latecomers beware, Five15’s FAQ page warns that, “Latecomers risk the wrath of the entertainers and public ridicule, enter at your own risk (But it sure adds to the spice of the show).” Although the drag queens take center stage, attendees can also expect their fair share of attention from the performers. Winners can earn a variety of Five15 merchandise, as well as photo opportunity with performers. Bingo usually lasts 90 minutes to two hours, and provides a variety of finger foods for guests like pizzas, flatbreads, burgers and chicken fingers. For bingo-goers looking for a larger meal, Sunday performances feature a brunch option. Five15 is Royal Oak-based independent store that sells books, music, movies and gifts that it describes as a “Left bank’ feel.’ Reservations must be made in advance.
Groupon information can be found at: http://gaybe.am/OJ. Regularly priced tickets start at $20 for shows Thursday through Saturday, and $30 for Sunday brunch. Five15 is located at 515 S. Washington Ave., in Royal Oak. Regular reservation information can be found online at five15.net/reservations/.
