HIGH-STYLIN' BINGO: We've already seen bingo go to the beach. Of course, the Standard Hollywood has been holding bingo games near the pool each and every Sunday night this summer. It was one of the 2010 things we wanted to try, but lo, look at this: August is not staying around.
SUNSET STRIP MUSIC FESTIVAL: If bingo isn't your thing, but bands are, best secure your room for the end-of-the-month mondo music spectacular that closes down the Strip for several days. The Standard is taking reservations, and those reservations can be taken through the hotel's Facebook page. We don't see too many "Book a Room" tabs on the ol' FB, so we wanted to make mention.
