No, this is not my ticket to Tijuana.
I’m participating in a Sunday afternoon Austin tradition, Chicken Shit Bingo. Dale Watson has moved his Sunday show and bingo to C-Boy’s Heart & Soul on South Congress. It used to be in north Austin at Ginny’s Longhorn Saloon. Ginny herself was at C-Boy’s to cheer on Dale.
The tickets are $2 each, one to a customer. You pick your ticket by pulling one out of a bag. The pot is $114… but Dale offers the option of picking one of his four pockets and keeping whatever money you find there. This Sunday he had Willie Nelson tickets to give away.
There’s a game every hour.
So gather ’round and cheer on the chicken!
My guys cheered me on.
But I didn’t win.
Maybe next year, Dale.
