Vicki Quade’s Nuns4Fun empire is nothing if not holy impressive. Since the inception of Late Night Catechism in 1993, it's raised $3 million-plus for retiring nuns. But that doesn’t mean that Mrs. Mary Margaret O’Brien—the former nun played by a witty Kathleen Puls Andrade on the night I attended—will be thanking you. Church bingo fund-raiser Mrs. O’Brien is full of salty-nun severity and some refreshing snark, welcoming audience-member squirms elicited by talk of religion on date night. As one-half of the token Jewish couple and unlikely winner of the first round of bingo, I got more attention and Catholic prizes than I'd prayed for—and promptly traded my Bible eraser for another winner’s mini Torah. (Don’t tell Mrs. O’Brien!) —Marissa Oberlander
