Vanuatu Kava Bar is now host to “The [2nd, maybe 3rd] Hottest Tuesday Night Bingo Game in Town (& comedy open mic).” It starts at 9pm, at which point the first-of-many hot, hot games of bingo will commence.Performers will enjoy a free shot of mouth-numbing kava and proximity to libations that will render the performance of comedy all but impossible.

Audience members and comedians will be given free bingo cards, and when that B-I-N-G-O hits, baby, the host is going to make it rain a single $10. There will be several games a night.  Vanuatu Kava Bar is located downtown on Eagle Street on “The Block.” Off Biltmore Ave, turn onto Eagle St which is across Biltmore from Hannah Flanagan’s.
