Ok, listen up: Since you are such an awesome Brokelyn reader, we’re going to let you in on a little secret going down in a secret location in Gowanus that will be a ruckus-y good time. Clear your plans for May 21; you might want to cancel anything on Sunday too, for good measure. There’s an event going down, starting at 9pm: the Underground Rebel Bingo Club. It’s a reinvention of the classic grandma game, a night of pure greatness where you can joyously hold that bingo marker while dancing, drinking and winning fun stuff. How do you feel about getting a discount? Or maybe winning a pair of tickets?! Brokelyn is here for you! Contest ends at 8pm 5/19!
The event is going down somewhere in Gowanus: ticket holders will be notified the night before of the exact location of the party. Tickets range from $5 to $15, depending on when you buy them, but Brokelyn has special deals just for you: when you use the Brokelyn code “BROKE” (all caps), you’ll pay just $5. Purchase your tickets here! Or, leave your best rebellion or secretive moment in the comments for a chance to win TWO free tickets! You have to be a Brokelyn e-mail subscriber to win, but it takes two seconds to sign up, and wouldn’t you want to be anyway (we promise no annoying spam)? Zombies, underground comments are also welcome.
Underground Rebel Bingo Club started simply with a drunken crew, and a bingo set absent of any directions. Since they had no idea how to play (they’re British, so maybe that’s a good excuse?), they made their own rules, and ended up having a wonderful night of B-I-N-G-O debauchery that’s now become a global underground party sensation. Now it’s Brooklyn’s turn next Saturday!
They have a few rules, aside from the actual game, and based on previous party videos and pictures, expect to make out with someone, loose a tutu, and/or have a ding dong drawn on your body at some point. Sorry Grandmas, you won’t be winning quarters or that Matlock DVD here.
Irony! Rule breaking! Secretiveness… Oh, goddammit, the suspense is killing us.
