If you're looking to make a few bucks, I've got the place for you. Hawkeye Downs in Cedar Rapids has Bingo every Friday and Saturday night! No reason to book that Allegiant flight to Vegas, we've got Bingo in our backyard!

My friend is a regular at Bingo night at "The Downs." He says it can get pretty wild. Last week, 87 year-old Muriel Donaldson won three games in row! With her winnings, she bought four new Bingo daubers and a stuffed troll for good luck.

My buddy also told me they sell food and beer at the Bingo game. It all sounds too good to be true. Bingo, beer and brats......You had me at hello. I'm also told there is plenty of parking and clean restrooms.

The action starts at 6:30 p.m. tonight at Hawkeye Downs. The address is 4400 6th Street SW, in beautiful Cedar Rapids. I'm not sure what the "buy in" will cost, just show up with plenty of cash.

Good luck to everyone tonight at the Bingo parlor. Please remember to bet with your head, not over it. Bingo is serious business here in Iowa, but at the end of the night you'll find out it's just a load of balls.
