Bad Ass Bingo

What's better than bingo? Bad Ass Bingo!
A bad ass evening of bingo, brews & rockin' rad music happens every Tuesday night at Mike's Place Pub throughout the winter with proceeds benefiting local charities. 
Bring your pals, your dauber and your lucky troll because there are some kick-ass prizes to be won. 
Great prizes from local shops, complete with some classy Nelson thrift store finds too!
This January, the proceeds go to Kootenay Co-op Radio - pretty righteous dude.
Be sure to bring cash and get there early... it's always a sellout event.
