Shamrock 'n' roll! (Do I win worst pun award?)

Guinness is petitioning to make March 17th an official holiday. I think March 18th would be more appreciated by just about everyone, but it's a sweet idea nonetheless. Sign the petition, then mark your calendar for a night of Celtic Karaoke at Skylark.

Karaoke will be supplemented with Irish tunes so brush up on The Pogues and U2. Also, be ready to belt out some traditional Irish drinking songs, since there will be special prizes for those who lead the bar in singing the classics. Karaoke hostess Pirate Jess (neƩ Jess Lynch) has promised "surreal leprechaun movie visuals" to accompany your crooning. Whatever that means. I shudder to think. I will be saying magically delicious all night, since I already kind of do that. Oh, and dibs on "With or Without You" by U2!

But I digress. Tony will have Shepherd's Pie ready to serve as hearty ballast for the inevitable green beer specials, black and tans, irish whiskeys and Bailey's irish coffees. Tuesday night happy hour prices will make all this fun possible without breaking the bank. And hey wait, there's no more banks left to break!

So, pass the Jameson's.

The evening's entertainment begins with Spin Your Wax (open turntables--bring Irish vinyl of course) at 7:00pm and is free as always. Karaoke signup starts at 9:00pm.
