Mark your calendars, Phoenix. From poetry and comedy to storytelling and bingo, there's more than enough to keep you entertained -- and out of the house -- this week.
Generally reserved for the white- or purple-haired crowd, bingo and board games make a weekly appearance at one of the Valley's gay hotspots: Apollo's Lounge.

Typically played immediately following a screening of the popular RuPaul's Drag Race, whose newest season recently ended, Naughty or Nice Bingo is a not-safe-for-work version of the popular game of chance. Noted Phoenix drag queen Desiree Demornay is at the helm, telling jokes between calling numbers. Prizes vary, featuring bar gift cards, tabs, and perks. But most come for a friendly competition -- after all, anyone who says they don't like shouting out of turn is probably lying.
Spell out success with B-I-N-G-O starting around 8:30 p.m. on Monday, June 23, at Apollo's Lounge, 5749 North Seventh Street. Admission to game night is free to play and reserved for the 21-and-over crowd, featuring 2-4-1 "you call it" drinks specials.
