If you like the idea of social sports but are more inclined to belt out some tunes in the shower, check out District Karaoke league. Now in its second year, District Karaoke is “D.C.’s only social, team-based karaoke league,” according to the website.
Over the course of eight weeks, teams of up to eight people perform solo and group karaoke numbers, which are then scored by fellow competitors. This season there will be five divisions, taking place on different weeknights around the area, including Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Policy, 1904 14th Street NW.
The highest scoring teams from each division go on to semifinals and finals. The season culminates in a citywide final round at Penn Social (801 E Street, NW). Some weeks are themed, for instance there’s a “Disney & Showtunes” night and a “90s Mixtape” night.
Registration is open now for teams and individuals. Don’t miss your chance to claim karaoke dominance — and a T-shirt, which is included in the registration price ($55.00 per person).
Get into the Holiday spirit, bring a toy and celebrate with neighbors at Policy.
Tonight, December 18, Policy Restaurant and Lounge is hosting : Neighborhood Appreciation Night. Join management and staff for complimentary hors d’oeuvres and holiday cider from 6 to 8 pm. The event will also include a Toys for Tots donation drive.
Policy has partnered with Toys for Tots for the holidays and are encouraging any interested participants to bring new unwrapped gifts with them.
Policy is at 1904 14th Street NW.
The benefit event at Policy was last night, but you can still donate to the United for Haiti benefit for Partners in Health. Proceeds help victims of the recent Haiti earthquake..
