Looks y'all had a great time! LA GAF seem like good people; I'm sorry I was in crunch mode and couldn't join in, especially since I live so close to that place. Maybe next time! (Though with much more impending crunch coming soon I still may miss out ;_
Are these places open mic with a stage or private rooms? I personally prefer the Asian styled private rooms for karaoke. I want to drunkenly sing Bruno Mars so only my party can hear, heckle or join in.
