History of Blingo

Back in the mid aughts, an intrepid woman named Ellie enjoyed visiting any and every watering hole in Northeast Minneapolis. She found delightful activities of all kinds, but was dismayed to be the youngest person in the room by a good 50 years.  She thought: "wouldn't it be fun if there was a bingo night for my peers, and the young at heart? Maybe with a chalice or something else shiny?"

That was the day Blingo was born.
