Drag Queen Bingo @ Freddie's

Many local venues have a regular Wednesday night activity or deal to attract the weekday crowd. Several places have half price burgers or happy hour deals. Iota has open mic. RiRa has comedy standup. And now I've learned that Freddie's in Crystal City has ... Drag Queen Bingo?

Its definitely a break from the ordinary in Arlington, with Freddie's being a beach themed and LGBT friendly bar. It's a fun and laugh filled night with bingo hostess like Ofelia Bottoms reading the numbers.

The best part is when two people get bingo simultaneously, and Ofelia makes the crowd judge the winner as they "lip sync for their lives!"

The free bingo games start at 8pm and the night also features half price burgers.
