Bingo conjures up images of blue-haired ladies in large church cafeterias with lucky troll dolls trying to win it big. But what if it’s bingo that involves bacon? You get BACON BINGO!
Every Wednesday in January, North Park’s El Take It Easy holds a Bacon Bingo with a chance to win a pound of bacon each game. Bingo sheets are free — one per person per game — but the fun? Priceless. Bacon bingo happens approximately every 20 minutes from 7:30 until closing.
El Take It Easy, the sister restaurant of The Linkery and both founded by Jay Porter, accepts no reservations. It’s on a first come, first serve basis. Gratuities are also included in the final tab.
There is one remaining Wednesday this month to play Bacon Bingo and it may be gone forever. But you can still purchase your own pound of bacon at either restaurant even after the month has passed.
Just remember to scream BACON if you get five numbers in a row. Lucky troll dolls are not included with the bingo sheets.

I used to play a lot of bingo before my friend moved away. We would take photos of our food back then, too, and would hear the church ladies wondering why on earth we were taking photos of our food. Bacon bingo sounds awesome!
It would be even more awesome if we actually won bacon!
You know, you really need another photo just to accommodate her hair — of which I am still envious!
Unfortunately none of the photos I took last night accurately displayed the coolness of the beehive.
hi darlene – very cool!
is the bacon housemade by the linkery or is it just storebought bacon?
that lady should be in the b-52’s! 🙂
The bacon is house-made!
And yes! Jenny (the one in the second photo) looks like Kate Pierson from the B-52s. Her hair went… HIGHER.
BACON – did I win?
Next time then.
I do hope I win next time!
