Fortunately, there's now a solution. Pete Rock, the most awesomely misanthropic karaoke host in the city, is now doing Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the new Fox & Fiddle across from Wellesley Station (the pub that used to be Fiddler's Green). Fiddler's Green used to do weekend karaoke too, in a tiny, stuffy second floor room that was inevitably packed. I wasn't a huge fan. Now, however, the karaoke is in a tiny second floor room, with the windows open. Plus Pete insulting everyone. Also, the wait staff can apparently all sing really goddamn well.
The fact that the place is a five-minute walk from my new castle in the sky doesn't hurt either.
