As anyone who frequents the bingo parlors knows, the facade of genteel decorum drops once the first game is won — especially if it's won by that bitch Eulalie. The first cry of "Bingo!" angries up the blood something fierce, and all bets are off from that point forward. Now, imagine what would happen if you throw semi-clad young women into the mix — OK, now stop imagining. The Randy Dandies present Burlesque Bingo from 9 to 11 p.m. at the Fountain on Locust (3037 Locust Street; 314-535-7800), and it promises all the thrills of cutthroat bingo, with the added titillation of burlesque performers Mimi LeYu, Faith McQueen and Naughty Bits, plus silly prizes — all this for $5 at the door. The Fountain on Locust will be mixing up retro cocktail specials starting at 8 p.m., making this a triple threat start to your holiday weekend — broads, booze and bingo are in the Declaration of Independence after all. Benjamin Franklin added it to the "pursuit of happiness" clause when Button Gwinnett wasn't looking.
