Tuesday, August 11 – Karaoke Forever
The Crown, 1910 N. Charles St. at 9:00 PM – FREE

I’ve never been the biggest karaoke fan, but The Crown’s Tuesday karaoke night is a blast. No shame, no modesty, no hold-back. It really gets going around 10:30 or so and makes a good companion to whatever show is happening across the hall in the Red Room.
