We headed back to My Way, which once again has karaoke. Unfortunately, it was not the other people who used to do it, just a one man production. And he's got a, uh, challenging playlist. There's stuff to be sung, for sure, but it wasn't a very robust list. Combined with My Way's usual lack of service (none, really,) I have to admit it wasn't my favorite venue. However, the company was good, at least.
Also, on a karaoke-related note, volumes between songs, singers and music was somewhat challenging. Sometimes I couldn't hear the people singing above the music, sometimes when I was up there my own vocals were really, really loud. Also, as you may note before, the order in which people were called was... interesting. Oh, and the worst part? They closed up shop at midnight. Midnight! Yeesh.
