If you're working late and feel like blowing off steam on your way home to Maryland, you may want to stop at Silver Spring's Stained Glass Pub, just two blocks from the Glenmont Metro.
The kitchen stays open until 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday nights, so you can grab a pizza or a half-price burger in case you skipped dinner. The karaoke is in the dining room, and a separate bar caters to those who just want to hang out. It can be a study in contrasts when someone is singing System of a Down's "Chop Suey" while the bar is simultaneously blasting Usher's "My Way," but the sound doesn't carry too far across the two rooms.
The night attracts a group of regulars whose musical tastes are all over the map, so you'll feel comfortable singing basically anything. And, like Cheers, everyone pretty much knows your name, or at least they'll learn it before the night is out.
