4.10.13 … So I’m hip now!!! B-I-N-G-O!

Bingo, culture, hipster crowd, WSJ.com, LOL: Ha! So I’m hip now!!!

Bingo is the latest old-school pastime enjoying a resurgence among young people, along with knitting, bowling and euchre. From the London-based Underground Rebel Bingo Club, which throws wild, impromptu bingo parties around the world, to a version in Philadelphia involving drag queens on roller skates, to “cosmic bingo” played under black light, bingo is crawling out of its recreation-center past.

Bingo equipment makers are reaching out to the new demographic with hand-held, electronic bingo devices and fluorescent bingo paper and daubers that glow in the dark, says Kathy Donnelly, vice president of customer relations at Arrow International, which bills itself as the world’s largest manufacturer of bingo supplies. She declined to provide any sales numbers.
