And B-I-N-G-O was Her Name-O!

As Sam Cooke once sang, "It's been a long time coming . . . " and thank goodness, a lady-friendly change is coming to the 'Bird. Mom and the girls have talked a big game about Drag Queen Bingo, reminded and re-inspired, of course, by "Sex and the City's" TBS and WB re-runs. Finally, Lil' Miss Bibb put her well-adorned feet to the fire and has made it happen.

On Wednesday, May 20, the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom, along with the ultra-glam and exquisite Deonna Sage, hosts the first-ever ni
ght of Drag Queen Bingo. The fabulosity, which promises "frozen cosmos, frolick and freebies," as well as no cover charge and free drinks for the ladies, starts at 6:30 p.m. and lasts until 9 p.m.

As Time wrote in "How Drag Queens Took Over Bingo":

"One of the first things you learn at drag queen bingo is that if you can't take being picked on, you keep your mouth shut. Yes, this is bingo, the game of blue-haired grandmas and church-basement fundraisers, but a drag queen is a drag queen, and if in between N-36 and I-18 your table is being rowdy, she'll be rowdy right back . . ."

And you better believe that Mom and the girls are ready to declare their BINGO! Until then, enjoy this awe-inspiring photo of Miz Sage that Georgie Girl took at this year's 11th Hour Readers' Choice Awards.
