OK, one way or another, kara-oke is ON for this Friday evening.

Now, the question is: location, location, location. [el snippo.] As always, I'm open to suggestions/debates on this matter, as I don't feel strongly one way or another. We're shooting for a better selection than the place we had last time, yet slightly larger than downstairs at Remington's. (Upstairs at Remington's had both a tiny selection and no air conditioning, so, yeah, no.)

Sadly, Regent has to move the next day, so she won't be able to join us. (Oh, and all kara-oke-ers are encouraged to help her move, of course.)

[EDIT: J's is right out, see comments for discussion on locations.]

My time is reserved in case of last minute packing emergencies, is what I was gonna say. I know how I was the night before my move so I wanna be there if necessary.

Aw! Thank you! I cannot tell how much I'll have gone nuts by then, but I really appreciate that!

I will definitely NOT be karaoke-ing. *sigh*

Aaron is always saying that Nuzback's (i think that's how you spell it) on Rt. 1 in Laurel has a really good selection.. but who knows if they even do it on Friday nights.

Trolley Stop didn't seem to have much more selection-wise compared to the last one we went to..

Downstairs Remmington's seemed to have the best selection, so I wouldn't be opposed to that. Or just randomlly trying a new place.

The people who used to do Nuzback's are the ones who did My Way, the favorite place we all love and miss. However, if nothing's changed, they don't to it Fridays. Oh, and Nuzback's looks like a freakin' dive, but that's neither here nor there.

OK first things first...I know the people that do the karoke at Remingtons downstairs. They have the best selection in this whole fucking area. You are not going to find someone that has a better selection. But Remingtons is small downstairs and the people that run the bar it's self are much less than desirable for a night of hangin out and partying.

Nuzback's..is um..how did you put it? 'looks like a freaking dive'. Well it does more than look like it, it is a freakin' dive, with some pretty scary clientel.

I have never been to J's but if they only have Karaoke on Wednesday nights than that's a prob.

There is always Oliver's. Half dive half really fun place. It is small if we crowd by the karaoke but there is room to spread out in the back if you don't mind not being right on top of where singing is occuring. And they have a decent selection.

I didn't think it was going to happen, from talks with the man setting this up so I have not conversed with the other half about going or not. I will do so and try to make it.

Oliver's was the first place Dona Quixote and I went many moons ago. It's tiny and dark and dive-y, but wasn't terrible. Different people are running kara-oke there now, though, so no idea what the selection will be like.
Me!ceciskittle on October 12th, 2004 08:59 am (UTC)
The selection is better than soem not the best but definitly not horrible. I used to work there, so I know it well. And I used to do karaoke there weekly.

J's Sports Cafe only has karaoke on wednesday. But they give out a prize!

Crep. OK, back to searching.

Huh, the Wednesday show at J's, in fact, is the My Way people. Who knew!

Did you say something about the old My Way dudes doing Fridays at the Corner Pub in Silver Spring? I vote for that. But I'm a little biased by location.
Me!ceciskittle on October 12th, 2004 08:45 am (UTC)
Why My Way people are you talking about? (short lady with poofy curly hair and her man that would play the trumpet?)

I was afriad of that. I so know why you guys like these people. My friends and I used to do karaoke every Saturday night religiously. At Olivers, with usingit. They rocked. Past tense. They actually started bringing they kids to karaoke and letting them sing in the mix before they woudl leave for the night, and they would stack the order. What I mean by this is that if they didn't like you or didn't want you to sing again, they would continually move you back in the line. For quite sometime they didn't do that to us. And then one night, they had their friends in the bar with them. And in a normal night we would get up to sing 5-7 times per person, and then this night, dude actually came up to my friends and said, "You guys can just leave, we're not gonna get you up to sing again" Because they were hanging with their friends and their friends were the only people they were putting up, I think my friends litterally only got up 2 times that night. They were fired from doing the karaoke there. And I don't know first hand but what I understand they had a very similar problem My Way. *shrug*

Just checked their website, they no longer do it in Silver Spring at all. On Friday's they have two shows, one in Odenton (?) and one in Riverdale (??)

Odenton is in a 'small country bar,' and Riverdale is in, uh, Riverdale, so there's drawbacks to both. :}

Keep those comments coming, people, I don't wanna just make an arbitrary decision here.

Yay! Please post as soon as you know time and location details, because I'll be coming in on the train, and I can try and arrange my transport accordingly.
