Each week during the summer, the Hideout's weekly Veggie Bingo game gives attendees a chance to win a jackpot of organic produce from Irv and Shelly’s Fresh Picks. Local celebrities (such as musician Ryley Walker and comedian Sarah Sherman) call the two-hour game every week, and all proceeds benefit one of the city's community gardens. Bingo cards are $4 each or three for $10, and if you're hungry you can snag a hot dog from the grill (in return for a $3 suggested donation). Players can sit at tables inside the Hideout or grab a drink and head outside to the picnic tables and listen as numbers are called over the venue's speaker system. It's certainly a more exciting way of getting your veggies than filling up a basket at the grocery store.
