Doug swears by Almoncello, and I know both Buckley's and the Artful Dodger offer weekday Karakoe nights, but I haven't heard whether these last two are worth a ravaged dignity. Are there more venues in which to emulate Neil Diamond and Cyndi Lauper? Can karaoke be retro fun, or is it beyond passe? My friends and I used to do killer Third Eye Blind renditions at Nevada Smith's in the city, so I'm not all that picky, just hopeful. Ay suggestions?
