Wharf Pub Bingo

If you haven’t had the opportunity to experience bingo at The Wharf Pub on a Thursday night over the last 2 years, you’ve really been missing out.

Previously hosted by the hilarious Charlie Duncan, Wharf Pub Bingo takes places during the off-season on Thursday nights starting at 8pm (9pm during the busy season).

Bingo will return to The Wharf Pub with a new host (maybe you?) on October 8th.

Lasting just about 2 hours, participants (more often than not it’s a completely full house) buy bingo cards for $1 a piece.

The host is responsible for calling out the bingo numbers, keeping the crowd engaged/entertained and leaving people with the bingo thirst to come back and play again.

Prizes for winning include gift certificates for Wharf Pub’s tater tots to generous gift certificates sometimes in the amount of $25 – $50.

The Wharf Pub is looking for a fun and engaging person to run Thursday Night Bingo!  Auditions for a new bingo host will be held on Wednesday, September from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The Wharf Pub is located at 37 Bowen’s Wharf in Newport, RI.
