Kok Sh*t Bingo at Kush Hialeah

KUSH Hospitality Group’s (KHG) Matthew “Kush” Kuscher and the team are preparing for another wild event at Kush Hialeah. KHG events tend to have clever tongue-in-cheek motifs and this one brings a peculiar pop-culture happening to the 305.

Beginning Sunday, February 28, 2021 at Noon, is Kush Hialeah’s newest monthly event (taking place on the last Sunday of every month) – Kok Sh*t Bingo in combination with Vintage Flea, KHG’s new flea market concept.

Like most KHG events, there will be a non-profit partner benefitting from all the shenanigans – donations will be collected for local Miami Animal Rescue

The distinctive event brings together food and drinks accompanied by bingo with a twist. During the event, guests purchase drinks to earn a free raffle ticket with a number on it. At exactly 3:05PM a live chicken will be placed in an outdoor chicken coop with a bingo board below it. Whatever number the chicken poops on is the winner.

The entire process can take five minutes or an hour. Raffle tickets are limited, but can be obtained with the purchase of any featured cocktail by Skyy Vodka (one ticket per drink); or by donating to Miami Animal Rescue which earns attendees two tickets.

Prizes include a $50 Kush Hospitality Group gift card; $50 Kush Hialeah bar tab; swag bags and more. Guests can also enjoy live bluegrass performance by Lonewolf and indulge in a whole gator served Caja China-style.
