Once a month, in the basement of the legendary American Legion FDR Post, this night of fun takes place. Don’t worry, they still serve drinks and the prices are fantastically affordable. Since it’s so limited and so popular, you have to reserve your spot in advance on their website, but that just adds to the fact that it’s for those that take their karaoke seriously.

Check out Rory Lake’s and discover a hidden gem most locals don’t even know about.

This fun spot has a distinct Caribbean theme with a bar located in the back room of the restaurant that’s an actual boat, so you can be sure they do tropical drinks right. They have a little stage next to the DJ, and you can do solo songs or bring a couple friends up with you because they have multiple microphones. The lyrics scroll in front of you so that you can read while facing the crowd.

Trader Todd’s has karaoke every night of the week, so check this place out the next time the karaoke bug bites!
