You better warm up your vocal chords for this Albany gay pub-come-club’s weekly karaoke dance party. Sing away your Monday blues by choosing from more than 175,000 songs and taking part in drink specials that flow until 2 am. And FYI, Waterworks hosts a different event every night of the week. Round two on Tipsy Tuesday, anyone?
