he local dive bar Model Caf (it’s pronounced “mo-DEL”) is no secret to the Allston hipster crowd. But only the savviest know about Rock n Roll Bingo Night. Female DJs spin records and the bingo wheel, and liquid prizes are redeemed at the bar. You never know who might stop in: Surprise guests have included the Foo Fighters and Pat Smear of Nirvana. Another secret: On the first Tuesday of every month, Model hosts its Rock N’ Roll Social, a gathering of bloggers, DJs, promoters, and booking agents. Moravek
Nearly 60,000 people play (regular) bingo every week in Massachusetts, but that’s a steep drop from the 200,000 who played 20 years ago, thanks to the indoor smoking ban, competition from casinos in Connecticut, and the aging of the game’s traditional clientele. Not to mention the amount of online bingo sites available is taking business away from the physical bingo halls. People can play bingo from the comfort of their own homes, they can play whilst commuting or on the move. People only go to bingo halls when they have the time and if you only have a spare 30 minutes, playing online will probably suit someone’s needs more. Access to a 20 pound bingo bonus makes playing bingo online much more alluring too. That, in turn, has cut into the proceeds of the Lottery Commission, which collects a 5 percent tax on bingo revenues.
