PJ Karaoke Nov16.jpg
Best of Houston winner, 2012:

If karaoke makes you queasy -- that is, if you don't relish the thought of standing onstage with a giant room full of strangers staring you down while you butcher "Rollin' in the Deep" -- then what you need to do is gather ten of your closest friends and head to PJ's for karaoke, which starts promptly at 9 p.m. every Friday.

Your pals can sit on the old couch in front of the stage and cheer you on, and they'll probably take up about half the space in the bar's intimate upstairs area, leaving less room for strangers who are surely judging you. Just kidding, but PJ's does get packed, so get there early, like 8:30 p.m. That'll give you enough time to stock up on liquid courage, too.

Next time you're at Guava Lamp, spend time standing (because that's almost all one can do) near the DJs.  When they're not being "hilarious" on the mic, they are being catty, rude bitches about nearly every song selection that they see.  I didn't bother staying to sing a single, solitary song, but didn't have the heart to tell the really sweet and concerned guy on the door why.
