SOUTH NORWALK, CT -- Game nights are parties waiting to happen and Cask Republic is ready to bring an old pasttime back with a younger generation. Beginning on July 17th, Cask Republic in South Norwalk will host CASK BINGO NIGHT, a weekly charity event held on the patio, from 6:30pm – 8:30pm. With the Fairfield Comedy Club as an event partner, each night will be hosted by local stand-up comedians ready to provide some laughter, fun and shenanigans. CASK BINGO NIGHT is all about having fun, supporting a Norwalk community charity and showcasing local comedic talent.
Guests are asked to make a $5 donation to play bingo with the proceeds benefitting a local charity. The designated charity for July is Pet Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in Norwalk. For more chances to win, additional cards are available and prizes will be awarded to each bingo winner. Raffle tickets will also be sold for $1. One half of the raffle proceeds will benefit the designated charity and the other half will be given to the raffle winner. The raffle winner must be present to win the earnings. Guests can enjoy beer and cocktail specials as well as the regular a la carte menu.
“We want to make this a social and accessible event for everyone. The great thing about this event is everyone plays at the same level with no learning curve and everyone has an equal chance of winning,” says Marissa Mayo, General Manager of Cask Republic South Norwalk. “This is definitely not going to be like your typical church basement bingo. We’re going to have some fun surprises during the evening and our goal is for everyone to have an awesome time.”
