Drag Queen Bingo is No Drag! Sacramento’s three-year running Drag Queen Bingo fundraising program has been popular since its 2009 debut for the WEAVE charity in Sacramento and has been going strong ever since.
Drag Queen Bingo is an exciting and unique festival of fun. This rollicking contest is the brainchild of Fred Palmer, the publisher of Outward Magazine and Rich Borillo and David Mansch, the owners of Hamburger Patties. The event is hosted by Drag Queens enthusiasts Felicity Diamonds, Rusty Nails, Drag Queen and Do Me Moore. Hamburger Patties continues to serve as the hosts since the very first bingo fundraiser.

More About Drag Queen Bingo Games
Drag Queen Bingo is both affordable and entertaining, at a mere $15 for 8 bingo games, and is also an excellent way to help raise money for non-profit organizations and charities. Guests can also feel free to order beverages or dinner from Hamburger Patties bar and menu at this 21 and over event. Drag Queen Bingo is filled with rambunctious and fun customs.
For example, when the number O-69 comes up, players are encouraged to yell ‘shots, shots, shots’. The restaurant accommodates them with a specialty themed $1 shot. Another ritual is that the winner of each game is made to run through the aisles of the restaurants, wearing a blond wig, tiara and boa. The losers of the bingo game are told to yell ‘pelt her all the way down and back’ as they eagerly throwing their losing cards at the winner.
