First Friday - Back to (the Old) School Edition

Although September is no longer the official Back to School month, we can still reminisce, right?

Let's take it back to the Old Skool this Friday at Garden Square Restaurant in Ontario, where the KJ is one of the remaining few without a fancy computer (yup, good old binders, golf pencils, song numbers, and CDGs!)

Happy hour in the bar from 4pm to 7pm, and karaoke starts at I don't remember when. I'll fill in the details by Thursday night. But I do know they close at 2am.

This isn't the fanciest of places. A couple of you already heard my story about the Yellow Lab and the "working girl" I encountered when I scouted this place a few months ago. It was not unlike being in a David Lynch film. But I have a feeling this might be yet another takeover, with a few interesting characters, and fodder for more good stories...

So I'm brushing up on my 80s rock ballads...what you got to represent the Old Skool??

    In case you're not already in it, find me on Facebook (last name Moxey) to be added to the First Friday Karaoke group. It's a closed group and a great way to invite your non-Meetup friends to the shenanigans. Honestly most of my friends don't sing, but we have a good time hanging out, catching up, and networking too!

    I know this is unusual but I have a homework assignment for my Sociology class, I'm supposed to observe and write about the area in general for social observation. Don't worry no names or anything just the social groups I see. Hope you don't mind me having pen and folder if not its okay.
