Real-Time Retreats - Bingo! Hit the Jackpot with Loews Hotels and Resorts!

And what says family more than grandparents? This Wednesday, Patty Metcalf-Sobczak and Aaron Mayo with Loews Hotels will lead us on a fun game of LOEWS bingo! Yep, it’s Granny Bingo, darlings!

What to wear? Break out your worst housecoat or your best go-to-Bingo track suit! Are you the little old lady from Pasadena, or are you the Grandpa who just came in from the golf course to score big with the ladies at the retirement home? Grab your walker and get over to your closet by Wednesday’s Zoom call... and pick out your best octogenarian outfit!

And here’s the part that’ll get your pace maker going... we’re playing for a staycation at one of the Loews Hotels for each of two BINGO games!

Plus, darlings, the first five people after 3:55 to log into the call (no earlier than 3:55pm, please) will win a pair of Maui Jim Blue Light Protect Lens glasses, thanks to Kelly McAlister of Maui Jim.

Get inspired for this week’s call by enjoying some of the fun stuff below:

11 Ways to Clean with Denture Tablets - because sometimes you just don’t want to break out the Lysol.

Bring back the housecoat. There’s something vaguely exotic and glamorous about these things, don’t you think?

What will you look like when you’re older? Try out the Change My Face app and input your vices (smoking, drugs, overexposure to the sun) to see what you’ll look like later in life. Or, download the AgingBooth app from the App Store. If these don’t scare the bejeezus out of you, we don’t know what will.

Vintage cocktails - but since when does a good cocktail go out of style? We’ve given you one of those classic drinks below, but feel free to choose your own.

Crown Sidecar cocktail



  • 1 oz. Crown Royal Special Reserve
  • 1/4 oz. triple sec

  • 1 wedge lime


  1. Add Crown Royal Special Reserve, triple sec, and sweet and sour mix.
