Superfun at Ego's tonight

Hello, Austin karaoke fans.

Last Sunday night, we instigated an impromptu 90s karaoke night at Egos and it turned out to be the tits. So we're carrying on the Sunday night tradition this week and encourage you to come out armed with your favorite 90s hits. Starts at 9!

Bonus if it's asian. Close to North Central plx.

The Common Interest

I haven't been to The Common Interest since they've moved...forever ago.  What's the vibe like on Friday nights?  Pretty much the same as it was about 5 years ago?


I need mah fix.

So my regular karaoke bar is now a no that we're expecting (YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!), I can't stand being around the smoke.  (Morning sickness can suck a big one, BTW).
I'm usually the DD for friends, but where's a good joint down South (think Oak Hill/Westlake/290/Mopac-ish) that has karoake on the weekends AND is non-smoking?

I'd gladly go on a weeknight, but being a teacher, that's a negatory.

Big fat brownie intarweb points if they serve food late too; seeing as prego ladies gotta eat! =)

TIA, ESP, HBO, and all that....ready GO!



Where's a good place to sing my sweet little heart out on a Saturday night?

Preferably not a private room place.

Karaoke in Austin?

I am trying to plan a birthday get-together for December and karaoke is something that is an absolute must. It would be Saturday evening, and while it isn't necessary, I would really love to find a place with karaoke rooms and Japanese songs.

Any recommendations? Again, Japanese/rooms is optional.


Best Weekend Karaoke Spot?

I'm thinking about celebrating my birthday with a little bit of karaoke madness. What's the best place in Austin to do this on a Friday or Saturday night? I don't want to do Common Interest (too many people, only get to do one song), or one of the Asian Karaoke rooms. I'm looking for a cool spot with a good song selection, and just enough people to make it fun, but not so many to make gracing the stage impossible.

Thanks in advance.
