If variety is the spice of life, Drag Queen Bingo has got your number.
“What’s Drag Queen Bingo?” You ask? It’s where a sleepy Florida past-time (Bingo) gets hijacked by a Vegas reject act (with drag queens), except in super vivid colors, better costumes, nicer legs and mad 80’s hair. Add a dash of nasty, mix in some live music and experience it “B4” it’s gone. (Ha-ha!)
The evening kicks off with Michael Hulett, followed by lovely “ladies” Ms. Beneva Fruitville and Ms. Lindsay Carlton conducting their fun-for-all game during intermission. So be ready to Play! Cover is $5 and includes your bingo card and jello-shot! You are so there! Right?
A word of caution; the Bearded Clam prides itself for its family friendly atmosphere. However; this is an adult only evening. And by “adult” we mean those that don’t take themselves or others too seriously. So don’t leave your “funny bone” at home, as everything is up for grabs at this comedic bingo soirée.
Drag Queen Bingo is brought to you by Angelique Monet, Show Director; every other Sunday, starting July 31st from 7pm – 12am, at the Bearded Clam Waterfront Restaurant & Tiki Bar.
Reservations suggested and may be made at the “Bearded Clam” Facebook page or by calling (941) 355-2600

The Bearded Clam Does Buffets the Waterside Way!
The Bearded Clam Waterfront Restaurant & Tiki Bar was at the center of the action during the First Annual Gulf Coast Open Fishing Tournament this past April, with a hot off the grill waterside menu. The three-day NBOA-sponsored event had many out of town spectators, and that meant the Clam, located on the waterfront at the Ramada Waterfront, worked extra hard to keep all well-fed, hydrated and entertained. What a success!
Visit the “Bearded Clam” on Facebook for the official photo gallery and to see the fresh “catch” of upcoming events. After all, from Luaus to social events and holiday festivities, the Clam always has a reason to celebrate and does so with décor, music, special holiday buffets and daily dinner and drink deals. Event buffet-style menus may feature items such as a feast of crab legs, shrimp, fish burritos, spicy sausage, red potatoes and corn on the cob for under $20 per person.
Just in time for Mother's Day, the Bearded Clam has it all figured out! Come to our place where everyone can enjoy themselves. Lay back and watch the kids by the pool, catch the ocean breeze with a cold drink and fantastic eats. What a way to spend your day!
