Hey Friends,

Awww yeah – this Sunday night is the Miami debut of HIP HOP KARAOKE!! We’re psyched, we’re getting tons of positive feedback, and the New Times and Flavorpill gave us some love too.

Remember, if you want to make sure you get your favorite song, sign up starts promptly at 10pm!! We give you a lyric sheet too in case you wanna study, and there’s complimentary Colt45 during the sign-up so you can drink away your stage fright… It’s at Chocolate Sundays at Purdy Lounge, one of Miami’s best and longest-running parties. Full info on our myspace.

Tonight in Miami, there are roughly 437 things to do. Here’s a few…
