Bombshell Bingo Blast
The rounds of bingo and bouts of comedy are complemented by fabulous pantomimed performances by Dior and Lee. Lee's includes a Dancing with the Stars-worthy flamenco-stepped half strip tease. She also works for the company that designs and produces the show's costumes, and uses her talents to make her own. Easton says some of the performer's wigs cost up to one thousand dollars. (Dolly Parton's bon mot, "It costs a lot of money to look this cheap" comes to mind.)
Speaking of cheap, Easton encourages the frugal to get a great bang for their five bucks before he raises Bombshell Bingo Blast's price to $15 in September. See the Cavern Club listing in Nightspots, p. 46, for August information.
He says he is gearing marketing efforts to women, dropping postcards and fliers at beauty shops and bridal salons. "Women looking for a safe, pretty wholesome atmosphere where they can be a little naughty will appreciate it," he says. If the enthusiasm of a mildly inebriated bachelorette party and that of mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and the occasional man are indicators, Easton is hitting his mark.
