Most professional singers overcome stage fright by soothing vocal chords with pints of molten butter and cramming their ears with malleable racquetballs. Devise your own performance tradition with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a two-hour karaoke party for up to 20 people at Otani's Sushi & Karaoke Bar (a $100 value), located on Roche Drive.
Otani’s soundproof private-party karaoke room allows vocalists to sing lyrics from a 40-inch flatscreen (for karaoke, TV, movies, or sports) while resting on plush leather couches. With thousands of songs (in English, Japanese, and Morse code) and wireless microphones at their disposal, karaoke cravers will have plenty of opportunities to relive a musical obsession from their middle-school days or show off their Pavarotti-like pipes as an operatic tenor. If you think your crooning capabilities will increase after a few sips of sake or a tasty maki, you can order from Otani's Sushi’s full menu of Asian-fusion favorites or use the room’s private bar for an adult libation.
