Before it arrives, the DJ calls out A7 like an echoing train conductor. A7! You shout Bingo but the music is too loud, and youre too drunk. BINGO!! The music stops. A drag queen comes to check your board. Shes good, she calls to the DJ. Youve won another martini.
Every Thursday night, The Lounge (517 Clematis Street, West Palm Beach) transforms into this bingo egalitarian wonderland of disco, drag queens, bingo, 20-somethings, 30-somethings, and grandmas. Admission is free, bingo starts at 9, and from 9 to 11, drinks are only a buck. Call 561-655-9747, or visit myspace.com/debutante1.
