The bingo place reminds him of his father's sadness. This is where he went whenever the house got gray, whenever a memory gets too intrusive, whenever an old friend dies. The bingo place is a reminder of the happiness he couldn't give his father. And what kind of happiness was it? Did it last? Did it truly make him happy? Whenever he got home and didn't win anything, he was more morose than when he left. There is only a forced smile, and he didn't know what he wanted more, to make his father happy or ask him to leave.
