Drag Queen Bingo takes place every Friday night from 10 p.m. to midnight at Five15. Gamers must be 18 or older.
At Five15's weekend bingo matches, players don't come to win a jackpot or to appease their grandmothers. They come for the drag queen hostesses and their good-natured abuse, adult humor, and vivacity. A rotating roster of queens includes Sabin, Carol Lee, and the acerbic comedienne Trixie Deluxxe. Clustered around round tables, sipping smoothies or chai lattes from the full coffee bar, the patrons of Drag Queen Bingo defy categorization—gay, straight, men, women, and even the occasional 90-year-old, according to the Detroit Free Press. Each patron is fair game for the hosts' humorous darts, especially when they pick up their prizes. Historically, adult-themed prizes have included mugs and T-shirts. Detroit Free Press quotes a patron as observing, "It's not my mother's bingo. It's nobody's mother's bingo."
