Team Tracy Karaoke Auction 2/13: Help FInd A Cure For Breast Cancer

go to the Facebook event page
Have you ever wanted the power to make other people sing karaoke songs of your choosing AND help find a cure for breast cancer WHILE sipping on a cocktail? Of course you have! This is your lucky night.

Here's how it works:
You show up at Skylark around 8:00pm and find the lists of people on the karaoke auction block.* Write down the song and bid amount, and watch it for the next hour to make sure you aren't outbid! Singing begins at 9:00pm, regular karaoke afterwards. 100% of the money raised goes to Team Tracy to benefit the Susan G. Komen 3-Day For The Cure.

Confirmed singers so far are:
TRACY DART (eponymous anti-cancer activist/Pat Benatar soundalike)
JAY CATES (Corner Pocket bartender/lead vocals of Bend)
KATIE VOSS (Katie Voss Trio vocalist)
GUY OLSEN (karaoke host at Yen Wor)
ANDERS MARSHALL, DAVE GROSSETT (West Seattle karaoke stars)
ROGER KELLEY (Skylark bartender/golden-voiced crooner)
JESSIE SK (Skylark owner/booker)
and more, including the Skylark karaoke hosts themselves (Karaoke Kelli & Sierra).

If you want to join the auction and have people that will come and bid on you, email Skylark your information in advance. If you want to bid on the singers or donate to Team Tracy, just show up and watch the spectacle!

February Event Preview! Hint: Whole Lotta Love!

Whether Valentine's Day makes you warm and fuzzy or murderous and misanthropic, we have entertainment galore in February for you at Skylark.

Sat Feb 4 Local artist gift event Crafts & Draughts goes monthly with new and repeat vendors. A "make-your-own" table will feature everything you need to make your own valentines in between shopping and drinking. 

• Sat Feb 11 is our increasingly popular drag brunch, so you'll want tickets in advance to score a good table or bar seating close to the action.

• Mon Feb 13 we are hosting a Karaoke Benefit for Team Tracy. Fight breast cancer by bidding on local karaoke stars, biz owners, musicians, and young three-time survivor Tracy herself. 

• Tue Feb 14 we are bringing back last year's sold-out three course dinner and a show "A Valentine's Day Cabaret" and adding a second dessert & drinks seating. Whisper De Corvo has assembled a stellar lineup and Skylark has developed a scrumptious menu. Tickets available now, second seating tickets available shortly.

• Thu Feb 23 Westside Burlesque Revue brings you an Anti-Valentine's Burlesque Show to soothe your broken hearts. Tickets available now.
