Village Voice's Description
Sick of relying on the kindness of strangers, the surly Bingo Byotches head to divey airplane-theme bar Flight 151 for Thursday trivia night. The whole affair is highly unstructured: Every 20 minutes or so, the bartender asks a question and the first person seated at the bar to correctly answer wins a buyback. On Tuesdays, the bar offers "Flip Nights" for those who love losing money but can't afford the trip to Atlantic City. Grab a seat at the bar and stare the dealer-bartender deep in the eyes as he tosses a quarter and decides your destiny (for the next five minutes, anyway). Call it correct and the drink is free; crap out and you pay full price. If you're lucky, you'll stumble out a few hours later with someone you don't know and all the money you came with.

Cool decor with table cloths you can color on.
The bathroom is hilarious.
Make sure Steve is behind the bar (wed-sat) he's the best and tell him you know Lindsey.
