Don’t be chicken shit.
Next Sunday October 18, Bushwick City Farm is offering a unique opportunity to raise money for a new community garden. It involves about a dozen chickens, a life-size bingo board, and a lot of poop.
The volunteer-run community garden at 354 Stockton Street will be hosting its first-annual Chicken Shit Bingo fundraiser that will have folks praying for crap the whole night. The event involves feeding chickens and then letting them run around a huge bingo board. Attendees pay $5 for two squares, then hope a chicken defecates on their square. There will be prizes, with all proceeds going to the farm.
Bushwick City Farm isn’t the first to do chicken shit bingo. The idea originated in Austin, Texas at a bar called the Little Longhorn Saloon, where chicken shit bingo is a Sunday tradition that pairs nicely with country music and cold beer.
Chicken Shit Bingo at Bushwick City Farm, Stockton Street at Lewis Ave. Oct. 18 at 1–6 pm. Free admission, $5 per two squares on the bingo board.
