Knock At The Door, Duck and Dive, Dirty Gertie, Man Alive… Time to brush up on your bingo lingo – Tokyo Tina is taking its infamous bingo online with the launch of Bingo Academy Live.
Kicking off this Sunday, 20 September and happening each Sunday thereafter, drag superstar Valerie Hex will be hosting the number-calling, ball-dropping online game via Instagram Live, paired with enough booze, food and fun to put an end to those COVID-induced Sunday blues.
Available for contactless click and collect the day prior from Tokyo Tina, the packs include:
- bingo cards
- bingo pens
- an information card including the rules on how to play
- a timeline of the day and Instagram Live login details
- a QR code for Tina’s bingo playlist
- instructions on how to prepare the Tokyo Tina feast
- a cocktail recipe
Players will dine on edamame, cured kingfish, karaage chicken, okonomiyaki Japanese pancake, beef brisket ssam and kimchi fried rice alongside enough liquor for eight Aperol spritzes to ensure all participants keep well hydrated throughout the game.
Allowing friends, family and strangers alike to connect and foster a much-needed sense of community whilst staying socially distanced, Tokyo Tina’s Bingo Academy Live is certain to bring plenty of laughter into the homes of Victorians.
