Southern Fried Sunday imports Chicken Shit Bingo to Orlando for its 14th anniversary


Southern Fried Sunday, a hallowed local tradition of combining barbecue with country, roots and rock music, turns 14 this month and to celebrate, Will’s Pub is bringing an Austin, Texas, tradition to town. Chicken Shit Bingo, made famous by Ginny’s Little Longhorn saloon in Austin, is played by taking a chicken, putting it on top of a grid of numbered squares, and placing bets on what squares it will do its business on. Get the right sequence of numbers on your $2 ticket and you’ll win a bunch of money. Lauris Vidal provides live musical accompaniment to the chicken-watching, while the Rachel Decker Band, Tony Macaluso & the Hearts of Fire, Jordan Foley Duo and JunoSmile play inside. The optional barbecue dinner is prepared by Clay Watson, but fried chicken is, uh, not on the menu.

4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 19 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | | $10-$12
