Sing for your supper at Dad’s Grilled Cheese

Jim Begley

Everybody’s familiar with drinking games, but what about eating games? That void in your life can now be filled, courtesy of Karaoke Night at Dad’s Grilled Cheese. Monday through Wednesday from 6:30-9 p.m. you can wipe out your food ticket by scoring a 95 or better on the Magic Sing mic. Anything less and out comes the wallet.

The tune choice is yours—but select wisely; this is not as easy as it sounds. My rendition of “Total Eclipse of the Heart” got me an 81, while my near-pro singing friend managed no higher than 72 on three attempts. But maybe we shouldn’t feel too bad: Dad says only one person has actually succeeded in two months. I’ll be back to give it another shot soon. Maybe “Sweet Caroline” can win me a sandwich.
