    No. Just...NO! 10 bartenders behind the bar. First took my card and put it in his pocket. Tried to order another drink...another bartender took it to someone else, then asked what I wanted. S**T!!

    Karaoke on Friday nights is a must for anyone who enjoys dive bars and embarrassingly bad renditions of the greatest hits.

    Go to Recessions, order a "Kong" and sit in the back room behind the 1984 style big screen TV

    Just go and drink until karaoke sounds like a good idea. You don't have to DO it...
