It’s not exactly Vegas. But games of chance are drawing hundreds of players on Marco Island, with thousands of dollars changing hands each week. Yes, it’s bingo, at the Jewish Congregation of Marco Island (JCMI) on Winterberry Drive, back for the 12th year in a row.
Doors open at 5:30 each Monday evening, and the first bingo card isn’t called until 7 p.m., so there’s plenty of time for schmoozing, as well as eating a little. The price of admission and cards includes a supper featuring kosher hot dogs, plus chips, coffee and desserts.
