In karaoke—as in child rearing or police work—having fun is more important than being good. Throw talent out the window with today's Groupon: for $24, you get a two-hour private karaoke-party-room rental at The Common Interest (a $50 value).
The Common Interest’s specially designed private rooms accommodate music tastes of all types, with each boasting a touch-screen system stocked with more than 65,000 songs. Cram up to 10 aspiring vocalists inside the newly remodeled spaces, which include customizable light controls to help set the mood before marathon renditions of German oom-pah classics ensue. Nonmusically inclined patrons can use the flat-screen televisions to watch live sporting events, play videogames, or conduct motivational seminars over the Internet.
Refuel during extreme party-room sessions with eats from The Common Interest's classic Texan pub menu, including bacon-wrapped quail ($1.75 each, minimum of 3), the blue-cheese-and-bacon cheeseburger ($7.75), and corn-dog bites ($6.50/dozen). Locally sourced ingredients are used when available.
