Why? Karaoke at the Cat!

You know those nights that are just perfect? Where you’re surrounded by great people and you have a wonderful time and everything just flows? The kind of night where you look around and say: my life is pretty damn awesome? I totally had one of those nights…at karaoke, no less!

When Noodlecat put out a call for hosts for their monthly Karaoke at the Cat, I immediately raised my hand and then immediately called on my three never-fail, social-media-maven friends to host with me.

IMG_5163With Alicia, Amanda, and Kimberly by my side, this was sure to be an amazing night! This was also the Ohio Blogging Association‘s monthly meet-up, so there were plenty of friendly faces in the audience.

We started out with a slurpalicious dinner of noodles, twice-cooked chicken wings with miso BBQ, a pickle tray, edamame, and some steam buns.

Pro-tip: the Szechuan ramen is already darn spicy. You may not need to add half a bottle of hot sauce.

After that, it was time to fire up the crowds. The hostesses kicked things off with a rendition of “Dancing Queen” sure to make Abba cringe. From there, there was a steady stream of awesome performances, from “Brick House” to “Paradise by the Dashboard Lights” to “Don’tcha” to “Say My Name.”

We even got my Mom up to karaoke to one of her favorite songs: “Sweet Caroline!” I had a blast working the mic all night and dancing and singing along like a fool with the performers.
