SENIOR CITIZEN BINGO LADY AT PETE'S CANDY STORE
Though it's usually a pastime for cottonheads in Catholic churches, hipster bars have started playing host to B-I-N-G-O. Complicating matters is the SENIOR CITIZEN BINGO LADY AT PETE'S CANDY STORE. While the X Generation vamps ironically, this smoking gun keeps it real by shouting little-known rules, dissing potential cheaters, and gently chiding the caller to stop his dawdling. The old-world chutzpah's totally admirable, but her luck's less impressive: The night I watched, she never came close to taking home a prize.
