Bingo Hall Marriage Proposal

Written by: ava carson on 18/01/2012 12:50

Proposing to the girl of your dreams takes creativity and unusual places are definitely the trend. A romantic dinner for two while he pops the big question is all too common and just won’t do. If you want to impress you lady make it public and in a place she’d never dream of.

Steve Kalidoski, 43 caused quite a stir at Flutters Bingo in College Street, Rushden as he got on bended knee and popped the big question to his longtime partner Emma Wise. Bingo players broke out into applause as Miss Wise said yes to her sweetheart. The bingo club staff heightened the celebration and brought the happy couple a bottle of champagne and a bouquet of flowers.

Mr Kalidoski, said: “I think it went quite well – we have three young children together and we’re very happy in our relationship, so I wasn’t expecting her to say no. It was a bit spontaneous; I thought it would be a nice thing to do.”

Though the couple didn’t have any ties to the bingo hall, there was a bit of sentimental value for Mr. Kalidoski. He commented: “I used to work here as a bingo caller part-time after school or in the evening about 25 years ago. When I was four years old I came to watch Bambi here but had to be escorted out after Bambi’s mother died – I was inconsolable.

“Our children are all under five so we’re not in the position where we can go and fly off somewhere romantic very easily.

“I thought doing it up the Eiffel Tower or the Empire State Building might have been a bit cliche.
“Before tonight we hadn’t gone to a game of bingo in about 10 years.”

The stars must have been aligned for Miss Wise who also won two bingo games that night with a £3 two line bingo and £10 for a full house.

She said: “It’s a bit of a shock but I’d expect nothing less from Steve.

“The real highlight of the night for me was a line then a full house, though.”
