IF you like COMPLICATED read more below. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Below is more details for people who are more interested in reading about them
Costumes and face painting is encouraged.

This will fill up quick because there is no cost to play and also because it is really fun. Because of demand we are unable to take reservations. Tables will be given on a first come-first served basis. Just like a real bingo hall. How authentic!!

Game cards ARE provided. So are the beans which are to be used as markers. No charge to play. Prizes for the winners. Drink and food specials. Must be a customer to keep it fair for all those who want to play.

Y'ALL ASKED for a FAIR way to do reservations for a fee. As per your request, We TRIED it. Seems y'all prefer the NO RESERVATION model.

So we are back to doing FIRST COME FIRST SERVED FOR SEATS.

We will run this like a BINGO HALL style of service.
-No Reservations
-You may sit where you like.
-Strangers may sit at the table with you (Make a friend)
-You may NOT hold a table
-Full service at the bar
-If you order food, we will give you a number and bring it to you
-Full service wait staff will be working in the dining room downstairs ONLY. Not in game play area.
-Additional cards MAY be purchased. THAT'S HOW WINNERS DO IT.
-No outside food or beverage

We aren't planning on doing reservations. If we do, respect it. If you see an official El Big Bad reserved sign. Don't sit at that table. We will make you move. We won't help you find another table. If you remove a reserved sign, you will be asked to move. If you tell us that you didn't see it or you hide it, we will still make you move. If you distract us from making the game fun for the other people playing, you will be banned from that's nights game. Possibly even the establishment for the night. If you continue to disrupt the game you wil be banned permenently. We are trying to make the game fun and fair for everyone. That means people who are selfish or cheat won't be tolerated.

BE AWARE that this is a mixed language crowd. Some Spanish and non Spanish speakers. As a result, the games may not go at the speed that matches your preference. RESPECT eachother. Those learned are trying. Those that know have an advantage.

Even if seats are available we may not be able to allow you to join out of respect for the other players.
If you are late or we are unable to accomadate you, then you may still dine and drink downstairs without playing. Or come back next time.

We hope you can attend. And that you have a great time.
Please be patient with our staff.
Our primary function is a bar with kitchen.

Again we have to be fair to all who are interested and will not be able to take reservations for this event.

Feel free to tag your friends to invite them!!

TACO S TUESDAY 2 for 1 tacos!!!


Please feel free to DM us on Facebook or email us at with any questions, suggestions or concerns. Our goal is for us to make these events the best possible. With your continued interest and suggestions we will.
