Ever since the Hideout's free Soup and Bread event ended, our Wednesday nights have felt empty (as have our stomachs). So it was with great enthusiasm that we learned of the organizers' latest venture: Veggie Bingo.
Every Wednesday night through September 9, you'll be able to enjoy fresh veggies from local gardens as well as free hot dogs and tofu pups. The bingo (featuring a different celebrity caller each week) will run from 6:30-7:30 p.m., and cards cost $1 each or $5 for six. Prizes for the winners include jars of locally produced honey, bottles of hot sauce, handmade soap and a box of fresh produce from Irv & Shelly's Fresh Picks. All proceeds benefit NeighborSpace, a nonprofit organization that acquires and preserves community open space in the city.
The fun starts at 6 p.m. tonight, with local country singer Lawrence Peters doing the honors.
