Linda Gerard is a magician — she can turn any frown upside down and make the most wonton among us blush like a little girl. She’s a sailor-mouthed, velvet-handed, self-identified O.W.L. (older, wiser lesbian) and she’s one of our heros. Every Monday night at Ace Hotel & Swim Club, you can see Linda in all her glory as the singular hostess of Sissy Bingo (occasionally R-rated) where she serenades and scandalizes a rapt and devoted troupe of players. Prizes include champagne, homemade cookies and flattering attention from Linda (a hot commodity around these parts).
Tonight is a special edition of Sissy Bingo wherein Linda-devotee Conor Fetting-Smith will film Linda for his documentary about SoCal bingo culture. All bottles of wine are half off from 7-9pm in King’s Highway, but your contribution to bingo history will be priceless.
