As we noted back in May, spotting director Wes Anderson’s many stylistic signatures has become something of a sport among both fans and detractors. So, we thought, why not make it an actual game that you can play with friends? We gave you Wes Anderson Bingo.
Now, tonight, New Yorkers can come play along with The Royal Tenenbaums at a special Wes Anderson Bingo Night at the bar-theater Videology in Williamsburg. We’ll have your own unique board all laminated and ready, so all you need to do is bring yourself and, if you choose, your knit hat, your beret, or your tan suit jacket. There will also be prizes, including Darjeeling cordials, a copy of Tenenbaums inspiration From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, and even a gift certificate to Mr. Ned, Anderson’s personal tailor.
Wes Anderson Bingo!
