Karaoke Bars On the list of stupidly entertaining ways to spend your night, singing karaoke pretty much takes the cake. This incredibly ridiculous form of fun was originally invented by wacky Japanese people, and has since become one of the most popular things to do just about any night of the week. And since the drinks at karaoke bars are almost always cheap, these places draw everyone from frat boys on a student budget to business folks who don t want to spend ten dollars on a martini. While nothing is more entertaining than watching a fabulously awful performer croon for the crowd, there s also something to be said for the aspiring divas who take to the stage with amazing vocals and stars in their eyes. Karaoke bars in Dallas see just about every kind of song performed, from country hits to theatrical numbers to drunken duets.
