2023 Festive Drink Bingo

Drink bingo is baaaack, and it’s bringing all the good tidings! Get ready to earn stamps at two dozen downtown bars and restaurants, which have stepped up both their creativity and cheer factor even more this year. Think candy cane cocktails, a bevy of bubbles, and all the ‘nogs.

But, don’t take it from us. Comb through this list and start strategizing your route.

Game on, Holiday Style

Here’s how the game works: Head to any participating location and ask for a bingo card, get a stamp for every hot or cold beverage you buy (to-go counts, too!), rack up the bingos, and pre-arrange a DD if you’re planning to indulge in extra alcohol. Also know there are non-alcoholic alternatives for every boozy beverage, so everyone will have a great time playing this game.

Once you’ve gotten all your bingos—or run out of time—turn in your card at Santa Fe Mexican Grill & Cantina any time before January 15th to pick up your “Cheers” sticker and you’ll be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a gift card to your favorite bingo spot! Obviously, that means you’ll want to go for a blackout so you have first-hand knowledge of which drinks you want to revisit fo’ free. It’s science!

Bingo runs from December 1-December 31 this year. To the victors go the spoils.
