Bingo every Wednesday
Forget the dingy, smoky, cavernous Bingo halls of yesteryear and head for the Shane Center (6500 Indian Creek Drive) in Miami Beach on any Wednesday night for a different kind of Bingo experience.

In addition, there are large jackpots, a guaranteed prize board, free parking in an adjoining lot, and complimentary refreshments.
