New York: Karaoke Party at Mulberry Street Bar


  • Mulberry Street Bar 176 Mulberry Street New York, NY, 10013

Forget about the food for an evening. Tonight it's all about music. Come hang out with me at Mulberry Street Bar, the second oldest bar in New York City for a night of beer and karaoke. No formal event, just me, some beer, and some interactive music. Bring a copy of the book (or anything else) if you want it signed, or just stop by to say hi. Don't be shy, I'll be there all night. If you're lucky (or unlucky), Ed and the rest of the Serious Eats crew will be on hand hamming it up.

No special admission, it's just a regular night at MSB.
