Yesterday, a few friends and I decided to finally experience “chicken shit bingo.” No, there is no typo here. This very special bingo is apparently – and obviously, judging by the number of people that lined up to experience it – an Austin institution. To be filed in #KeepAustinWeird
Every Sunday, The Little Longhorn Saloon organizes this bingo game and participants can win cash.
How does it work?
Each person can buy one ticket for 2 dollars. That gives each person one number. I had #24 for the first round, yesterday.
When everyone has a ticket, one of the two stars of the show – a brown and a black chickens – is brought to a special cage with a bingo board.
Everyone gathers around the cage. Some food is in for the chicken to eat. The first number the chicken poops on is the winner.
It may not be your typical Sunday activity but it’s fun to experience and to see people trying to influence the chicken!
Did I win? Sadly, no. The
stupid bird pooped on #30.
