Admittedly I tried this once before and was burned. Instead of fine free karaoke in a delightful Brooklyn bar, my compatriots and I had to settle for fine $2 karaoke in a Manhattan nun-filled room. Actually, it wasn’t half bad. But I was denied my free karaoke in a place run by a man who calls himself The Sisco Kid. That will not stand! So we are attempting to try it all over again.
You may ask: What does karaoke have to do with children’s literature?
I reply: Look! A bear! (and I exit stage left)
I figure it this way. If you like the regular Kidlit Drink Nights held here in New York, where people meet and mingle with different folks from the industry, imagine how much better it would be while yodeling the lyrics to a Flight of Seagulls song. No? Well we’re going to give it another shot anyway. Usual co-conspirator Cheryl Klein will unfortunately be unable to join us, but that doesn’t mean you should feel the same. Here are the details:
Where: The Old Carriage Inn, 312 7th Ave, Brooklyn, NY, (718) 788-7747
When: Saturday, February 28th. Karaoke begins at 9:00. I plan on being there at 8:30, to grab a table or two for us.
