An Alabama Bingo Parlor

Lots of things are different down here in the South than what we see at home. For instance, does this look like a bingo parlor to you?

If you look closely at the picture on the far left, though, you will see the bingo card. :)

This "bingo parlor" is bigger than any casino I have ever seen. They just completed a huge hotel in a completely different building. The main building has four or five wings - I have never seen all of it, and I have spent a fair amount of time here. :) We started seeing billboards for it a hundred miles away showing people who have won $500,000 or more!

It is located on I-85 at Shorter, Alabama, about 20 miles East of Montgomery.
